with G Caruso
Explore the expressive capacity of the human form. By developing our technique, we open the possibility to capture on paper the specific gestures and emotions evoked by the model. Figure drawing has always been the primary focus of artist Giulia Caruso and she is ready to share her trade secrets.
Working from a live model, as well as from historical examples and live demonstrations, we will cover a range of traditional mediums including: graphite sticks, white and red chalks on toned paper and inks. We will focus on gesture drawing, negative space and relative proportions to achieve an expressive result. We will learn simple ground rules to manage foreshortening, avoid graphic symbolizations and other common issues.
Lockdown: G Caruso re-adapted our classic Figure Drawing Workshop for the online format that the current situation requires. An in-depth and detailed approach to the subject and step-by-step demos will be enriched with additional exercises and experiments that everybody will be able to do at home. We will experiment with a variety of media and think outside of the box of the usual figure drawing practice.
We will have our classes via Zoom, an interactive livestreaming platform (you only need a laptop or tablet, or a smartphone with a big screen).
If you miss working with a class and you are bored of following tutorials online without access to constructive communication with an instructor, this is the workshop for you!
