Figure drawing/life drawing studio has been created as many artists have shown interest. This is an opportunity to work from a live professional model. It is not a club, class or workshop. There is no instructor present. It will be in a traditional academic format with gesture poses, several 20-minute poses and possibly 30-minute poses.
Figure drawing, also called Life Drawing, is drawing the human form. Figure drawing has always been the cornerstone of artistic training, but is also popular with amateur as well as professional artists. The human figure can express every aspect of humanity, however life class is not the place for ‘pushing boundaries’ or risque poses. So, when you attend a life drawing class, you are participating in a centuries-old artistic tradition. You might like to visit an art gallery and observe the many classical nudes in painting and sculpture before you attend your first life drawing class. A gallery here in Sunset Art Galleries of Amarillo that you can visit is chrisjohnsonfineart.com. The format of the life-drawing class will be with a model in several poses through the allotted class time.
$15 per artist per session ($50 per month when prepaid). This class will meet during the spring and summer months. 16 student maximum. Please contact Amarillo Art Institute at (806) 354-8802 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
