Students will be working with pencil and white chalk, and will be guided through the process of toning their own paper. There will be an introduction on a variety of drawing papers available and the ways that different kinds of dyes affect the transparency and value of a drawing.

Students will be taught to use the sight-size method of measurement, which trains the eye to view the subject with accuracy in order to reproduce it successfully. Throughout the course, students apply this method of measurement to the human figure.

The class will work on one long pose, focusing on proportion, line quality, light impression and atmosphere. Students receive daily individual critiques to help guide them towards a fully resolved and accurate drawing.

Students may attend the workshop 2 weeks or 4 weeks.
