Five years running, every Wednesday and Thursday at 5PM, the only walk-in, no-registration, instructed figure drawing class of its kind, with Jamie Bollenbach, MFA, an experienced teacher who has taught with the UW School of Art, the Frye Art Museum, Highline Community College, and Northwest College of Art.
With classic challenges and individual feedback, this is one of the easiest ways to get back into observational art, build core visual art skills, and begin the search for your personal form of expression based on the human figure. Boiling down to intense observation, this is never one size fits all: whether you have been drawing for decades or started today, we can work together to get to the next level.
It's also an excellent resource for people working or studying character design!
"Drawing directly from a real human being fills the artwork with the living body in real space, and real time, changing and changed by the fully conscious visual mind." - Jamie Bollenbach
There is nothing like figure drawing to get artists into the crucial habit of seeing human beings in the real world through their own eyes. Seeing and drawing living models inspired artists throughout our history; even the explosion of digital media only created new demand for this fundamental artistic skill.
These live model sessions offer light, open instruction to help you develop the timeless techniques for drawing the live human form. There are no requirements or prerequisites, but we offer professional feedback at the level you want.
The instructor's years of teaching experience shapes a gentle but powerful session: we present careful observation and realism, but always as a grammar for the expressive poetry and visual experiment of Art - a college-level class without the cost or stress.
From architects to designers, from new students to experienced professional artists, you're always welcome to drop-in and use your own techniques with this friendly, grow-at-your-own-pace group. All skill levels are welcome.
