In this course, participants will learn the basic elements and principles of life drawing in relation to the human figure. They will study the proportion and structure of the human body through observation, and draw using charcoal, pencil, coloured pencils, pen and ink, taking note of shapes, quality of line, values, texture, colour, form, and its relation with the environment. The course will combine long poses to allow participants to study a particular part of the body in depth with short poses concentrating on the posture, gestures and movement of the model.  
This course is open to anyone who loves drawing and seriously wants to learn to draw the human figure. Please come with an open mind and passion to learn. Participants need to be 18 years old and above. The class involves drawing both male and female models (clothed and unclothed). 
Participants are to contact the instructor for registration, payment and details of the course.
