Considering the Figure: Interpreting the Figure

Date: Friday, August 29, 2014
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Speaker: Michael Horowitz
Type: Drawing Class

Artist Michael Horowitz leads classes emphasizing figure drawing. Using the Museum’s collections and figure models as inspiration, the classes explores the figure’s basic construction and anatomy as well as its use as a means of self-expression.

In this class, students explore their personal style while drawing from a live model. Using the works of Moore and Matisse as inspiration, students experiment with the use of scale and cropping and the placement of a figure in a composition.
