Eric Saint George Presents:

Figure Drawing Workshop

For all levels, including beginners
Saturday Dec 16th, 2023 9am-12:30pm

The goal of this half day workshop is to offer to the participants the opportunity to practice and improve the liveliness and expression of their quick gestural drawings of the human form.


Focusing on short poses (mostly 30 seconds to 2 minutes), students will practice techniques and exercises to develop hand-eye coordination and learn strategies for gesture drawings (such as in which order to start and develop the drawing) and improve their ability to draw quick and expressive drawings.


This workshop is appropriate for all levels including beginners. Demos and hands-on critiques are an important part of the instruction.

Cost: $50. Model fee is included but tips are appreciated. Materials are not provided.

Recommended supply list will be provided to registered participants.
