This workshop is designed for those with some figure drawing experience. We recommend: Elemental Figure Drawing workshop or at least a few Drop-In Figure Drawing sessions. 

The key to successful figure drawing is to learn how to observe and draw what you actually see. Join Holly in this 4-day workshop to learn how to observe the interplay of form, value, mass and line. Through various sketching techniques, using a live nude model in the studio, you will learn the secrets to producing a fluent and dynamic figure drawing.

Ready for a more intensive, jammed packed with information, live figure drawing class? This workshop is perfect for artists who are ready to push their personal boundaries in drawing. We will be solidifying the concepts of form, value, proportion and foreshortening.

Holly is an experienced figure artist and teacher and has a knack for identifying personal style and bringing out the inner artist within her students. With a small group, there is a lot of time for one-on-one instruction as well as personal and group critiques. If you are looking for that extra push in the right direction this class is for you.
