Course Description

Embrace the figure and learn the ways to translate the lyricism of the human form with various methods from drawing to painting in a wide range of media. Through demonstration and individual instruction, Leyah will teach techniques to approach the figure with the fluid gestures that convey both movement and anatomy. Working in charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and more, Leyah makes this sometimes challenging subject both easy to grasp and fun. All levels welcome.
