Figure Drawing – Master Study is a fun way to explore different art styles through figure drawing. In our Spring class, students will learn about the work and style of French impressionist artist Edgar Degas, famous for his candid and dream-like depictions of ballerinas, as we work from a Degas-inspired model.
The class will begin with a brief overview of Degas’ life and art, followed by a figure drawing session with a live, clothed model. Our ballerina model will perform both short and long poses inspired by Degas’ pieces, and we will discuss the different elements that make Degas’ work both distinct and timeless. Artists are welcome to work in their preferred media.
Learning about other artists and their signature style is a great way to get inspired and expand your own artistic skill set. It brings about a greater understanding of art in general, and gives a fresh perspective to our own work.
