Figure Drawing for All Levels with Daphne Cote


Thursdays, March 28 & April 4, 11, & 18     6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Fee includes Model Fee

When you first work from life models you can feel you need some assistance to get started. As you gain experience, questions are still likely to arise about proportion, shading, anatomy, etc. This class is designed to give beginners confidence to attend open model sessions but also to further the skills of more advanced students. We will work on understanding anatomy to accomplish meaningful forms in our drawings, and on creating depth of form through the use of light and shadow. Importantly, we will also be attempting to capture a model’s energy and bring life into our drawings by pushing the use of our drawing tools.

About the Instructor:  Daphne Côté has been instructing art classes since 2004. She was drawn to the study of visual arts, and has been painting, since she was a small kid. She has been showing and selling her work for more than 18 years. The human figure is the main subject of her work,
