Five Centuries of Figure Drawing in the Norton Simon: The Model
- 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join artist and educator Richard Houston as he investigates and analyzes how artists have historically treated the human figure in their work. Using the Norton Simon’s rich collection of artwork, this course surveys stylistic approaches to the figure throughout time and place. Shape, contour, value and perspective are discussed in each class.
Work from a clothed live model in the galleries, applying stylistic approaches from previous sessions.
