A Focus on the Figure: Parisian Nights with Toulouse-Lautrec

Date: Friday, March 29, 2013
Time: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Teacher: Michael Horowitz
Type: Drawing Class

Artist Michael Horowitz focuses on how to draw the figure in a series of Friday night classes (3/1, 3/15, 3/22 & 3/29). Using the Museum’s collections as inspiration, participants explore the figure through gesture, basic construction, basic anatomy and self-expression by using a variety of styles to draw a live, clothed, figure model.

Parisian Nights with Toulouse-Lautrec
Using a more graphic approach to the figure, as seen in works by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, participants capture the essence of 19th-century Paris by sketching a model in period costume.
