In this class we’ll be learning the art of Contrapposto—a historic technique for creating dramatic, standing semi-seated poses. Using Grecian and Roman sculptures and Old Master drawings alongside original poses from SLD models as references, by the end of class you can expect to understand how to create truly dynamic and dramatic figure drawings. You’ll also be given the bonus of a few pages of Ann’s upcoming book to keep as reference (attached in confirmation)
