February 4, 6, and 8, 2019
11:45 AM - 1:15 PM

This class is designed for beginners. Learn the basics of life figure drawing (drawing from live models rather than from statues or photographs). Class members will take turns posing (clothed) for the other class members. The class will focus on gesture and proportion, using the 7.5-Head Method. Learn about line, shape, form, value, space, and texture. Benefit from the company and skills of others in the class. Poses will include short poses as well as more sustained ones. Participants should purchase a pad of newsprint (no smaller than 9" x 12", charcoal, several soft pencils (2B, 4B, and 6B), and a kneaded eraser, available at art and crafts stores.

Rose Mosner
Rose Mosner taught art in NYC schools for 22 years. Facing a low budget, she canvassed local stores for fabric scraps, leftover wool skeins, wallpaper sample books, and wood scraps. Thus began her love of found-object collage. Rose’s work has been in many juried shows, and she recently had a solo show at the Iona gallery.
