The course goal is to have the chance to push a drawing to the highest possible level in the time allotted. Students begin with a two to three-hour block in drawing, learning to see the figure as a whole and to clearly develop proper proportions and gesture in a linear way. From there, students begin the long pose. This drawing is developed to completion, starting with a loose gesture drawing and progressing  to a highly finished, fully modeled figure drawing. Throughout the course, the instructor stresses proper proportion, beautiful gesture, correct anatomy and an understanding of the relationship between large and small forms.

Instructor Darren Kingsley's paintings hang in the collections of Lucasfilm Ltd., the film production company founded by Star Wars creator George Lucas, and The Union League of Philadelphia as well as numerous private collections.
