Course Description


Artwork by Matt Tanzi

Throughout history, artists have strived to set themselves apart from the artists who came before them. What makes the art of an individual unique?  Is there more than one way to communicate the same idea? Together we will discover the ways artists from the Modern Era through present day use art history to inform how they draw the human figure. We will use what we discover to inform our own abstract figure drawing process. All levels of experience are welcome!
