The Department of Visual Art offers Open Figure Drawing once a month while classes are in session. Workshops are FREE and open to anyone who wants to draw the figure.
Drawing the human figure in its various shapes and positions is an important activity for all visual artists. Figure drawing, the process of drawing the human body from observation of a live model, is arguably the most difficult subject an artist commonly encounters.
One of the most enduring themes in the visual arts, figure drawing is important practice for the genres of portraiture, cartooning, graphic illustration, sculpture, medical illustration, and other fields that use depictions of the human form. Figure drawing can be done very simply, as in gesture drawing, or in more detail, using charcoal, pencil, or other drawing tools.
