What you'll learn in this figure drawing class:

Have you wanted to learn to draw people? Well, this course is designed for beginner to intermediate learners. We will learn how to construct the figure using various methods. Studying the basic proportions, and the dynamic actions, and some advanced techniques like foreshortening you will walk away with tools, techniques and ways of looking at drawing to continue working on your own. The class will begin with a warm up, drawing lessons, practice time and a wrap up critique of work. We will be using our own bodies as well as a PDF to model our drawings off of.

Materials Needed to Fully Participate:

  • Drawing paper, large and small
  • A pencil
  • Other optional materials: charcoal, eraser, pastel

Virtual Class FAQ

What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

I really enjoyed the class taught by Ianthe Jackson. It was refreshing that she had good photos and 3D model resources. Her teachings on human proportion, gesture drawing and foreshortening are very important.

I didn't feel the instructor was clear in her direction and she tried to accomplish too much in one hour. I left feeling like I did not learn very much.
