Introduction to Figure Drawing for Teens, Fridays, April 3-May 22, 4:30-6:30pm, $135/8-week session
Always wanted to try drawing people but don’t know where to start? Through gestural studies, artistic anatomy lessons, master copies, carefully selected exercises, and drawing from a clothed model this class will demystify the art of drawing the human form. Instructor Sarah Fantuzzo will teach a “whole brain” approach: using negative space, gesture, contour, and shadow shapes we will proceed in a perceptual ” right brain mode”. In addition we will see how learning proportions, perspective, and the mechanics of movement can inform the work. This class is perfect for anyone who wants to develop an art portfolio for college admissions and as well as those who want to gain confidence in their drawing skills. Those interested in drawing comic book characters as well as those interested in fashion illustraions will also benefit. All supplies included.
Did you know art gives your child’s brain a boost? New findings in neuroscience are showing every time children engage in a new or complex activity, their brains make new connections between cells. Creating art stimulates communication between the left and right half of the brain. Recent MRI studies show that art can enhance memory, relieve stress, and improve cognitive function.
