Learn the art of figure drawing using our step by step method. Beginner and advanced students will benefit from this drawing workshop. Students will be working directly from the nude using charcoal or carbon pencil. Principal ARA instructor Fernando Freitas will teach you the basics of gesture, proportion, and morphology. Finally finishing with big form and small form modeling. The end effect is a dramatic three dimensional figure.
Group sizes are kept quite small, so each paticipant gets lots of one-on-one attention from our superb instructors. ARA instructors teach year round so, unlike many artists who offer summer/holiday workshops our instructors are professional teachers as well as successful award-winning artists Whether you are an award winning experienced artist or have never painted before, our instructors will tailor to your skill level.
Most workshops are scheduled five days per week, Monday to Friday, with weekends free (unless otherwise noted). The hours are usually 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., but will occasionally go to 5:00 p.m.
