The figure has always held an especially important place in representational art, capable of bringing enormous impact to any work, from serene meditative calm to explosive physical dynamism. However, conventional wisdom says the figure is one of the most demanding and arduous subjects to translate onto a canvas.

Life Drawing Class challenges this long-held assumption, demonstrating creative, original strategies to make figure drawing an exciting, enjoyable, and above all successful experience. This hands-on guide offers a fresh approach to the subject, introducing a variety of mediums, drawing techniques, and simple methods that sharpen powers of observation while also encouraging the artist’s individual creative style and expression.
