FIGURE DRAWING

In this Seattle figure drawing class, you’ll learn how to draw realistic human figures using an easy step-by-step method, even if you’ve never drawn before. 

We’ll start out by drawing some simplified figures based on shapes such as easy-to-draw shapes such as ovals and cylinders; learn about the proportions; then learn how to add shading and details to make our figures look realistic and three-dimensional.  Plus: how to draw hands and feet, how to show the figure in action, and how to draw both male and female figures.  You can bring your own art materials, or buy an inexpensive materials kit.  More info about the kit

COLORED PENCIL DRAWING for BEGINNERS

Colored Pencil Class – Course Description

Looking for a colored pencil class in Seattle that’s easy, step-by-step, and designed for total beginners?  A class where you can learn how to draw in color using high quality pencils, in beautiful, vibrant hues?  Our Colored Pencil for Beginners workshop is a good place to start.

Colored pencils are the cleanest, most portable medium you can find.  There’s no paint to spill, no dust, no smudging or smearing, and no drying time. Unlike paints, there’s no need for water or other solvents.

You can carry colored pencils with you, take them anywhere, and if you see something you’d like to draw, pop them out and sketch or “paint” a lovely color image of it wherever you are.

In this class, you’ll spend the day drawing in color, working from step by step materials created by the instructor, so you can work at your own pace, consulting with the instructor whenever you need help.

About the materials:

An inexpensive materials kit for this class will be available for purchase in the first class.  You can either bring your own colored pencils, or buy the materials in a store a few blocks from the class is held. (The store opens at 10, so you can just stop by it if you like on the way to class.)

Images at right: Working in colored pencil on a softly colored paper, the instructor starts with a sketch in pencil; starts sketching in the white areas; then begins layering in the other colors, blending carefully, to create this lovely portrait of a dog. This is one of the approaches you’ll learn in this class. © Lonni Flowers 2018.
