Block-in Bootcamp Live Streaming Class

Block-in Bootcamp Live Streaming Class SeptemberSep 12 2021 01:00pm - OctoberOct 17 2021 04:00pm

Sundays. September 12th – October 17th. 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (Central Time)

The "block-in" is a well-established approach to starting a figure drawing or painting. A kind of "low-res" expression of the figure, a good block-in addresses all the big, important concepts that form the foundation of sound figure drawing: shape, size, placement, proportion, axis, anatomy, etc.

Our long-pose drawing classes build on the idea of a good block-in, but don't themselves offer much opportunity to practice this important stage of building a solid figure. That's what Block-in Bootcamp is for! This 6 week class emphasizes this all-important first stage of drawing the figure with several short to medium length poses with a variety of models. Practice is paramount, and this class is a good way to get more experience developing a good block-in.

This class will be streamed live on Zoom every week. Class sessions will meet on Sunday afternoons (Central time), when the instructor(s) will perform an extended demonstration on-camera. Each demo will focus on developing a block-in from scratch, and students are encouraged to work along with the instructor(s) and ask questions in real time. For students unable to attend the live sessions, a recording of each class will be made available for one week until the next class session begins.

Photo references will be made available to all students each week. These will be the same references the instructors will be using, and as such, we'll all be able to draw the same model, from the same point of view in every class – something not possible with traditional on-ground classes with a live model.
