Michael Mentler's SOFA Classes Begin September 10, 2017

The first classes at The Society of Figurative Arts begin on Sunday, September 10th.
Figure Drawing
Sundays 1 pm to 4 pm
6 3-hour sessions
$175.00 + $50.00 model fee = $225.00
enroll online
Develop your drawing ability to a higher level by working from a live model.
The first 30 minutes will be devoted to shorter poses with concentration on gesture and rhythm. Then a short demo presentation will be given detailing the evening's focus.
Poses will get progressively longer with the final pose being 30 minutes or longer. The emphasis will be on working from the general to the specific using comparative measurements
Individual instruction during class will be geared to improving drawing skill sets and the understanding of mass conception. To draw what we are looking at we need to understand what we are looking at in the visual language of points, lines, planes, and forms. You will learn a more accurate system of proportion based on the CSI (Cranial Sternal Index) structured around geometric solids instead of head lengths. The elements of; gesture, rhythm alignments, volumes, interlocks, tilt, twist, turn, and they yin yang approach to harmony. 
We will be working with dry media on toned paper. All materials and equipment will be supplied for this class....
