In Costumed Figure Drawing and Characterization you will explore the topics of the quick sketch, dynamic and subtle action, weighting, rhythm, stress and folds, designing shapes, and the impact of drawing techniques as they relate to drawing the costumed figure.
You will analyze master drawings through history, and Bill will demonstrate how we can use these concepts to improve the clarity of our costumed figure drawings’ feeling and expressions.
All students will receive online access to the class recordings and reference images for 12 months.
