Drawing New York ARTicles
Great figure drawings are informative. They describe a movement from a basic description of the overall geometry of the mass to a more general anatomical description, and then to an even more specific explanation of where the light and shadow fall on those forms.
When the pose is finished and I look away from the model, the world is transformed for me. I look at the triangles formed where the rafters meet the ceiling in a whole new way – I know just how I would draw them.
Special Drawing Sessions
Thanks to the generosity of Michael Arenella and his team at The Jazz Age Lawn Party, Drawing New York will have three artists available for hire to draw attendees in their jazzy finery. We highly encourage you to attend this amazing event and visit us there to say hello!
We would like to thank Rob Laterza at The Lutron Experience Center for hiring Drawing New York to run a custom drawing session for their clients and staff.
Students will learn the fundamentals of drawing including, paper and pencil basics, how to use shape and form to create depth, measuring and proportion, and rendering form with shade.
