Figure Drawing Painting
Reviewed by Ken C. on 5/19/2019
I really liked the camaraderie in the class between the instructor and students that have taken several of Sarah's classes, who was really nice. That said, I went to this class as it included this description "We will study grace and symmetry of the human form through a variety of media. By observing the figure through various poses, we will cover the basics of anatomy and proportion." We didn't really get an instruction on symmetry, proportion or anatomy. We just free drew or painted without instruction or guidance, except for looking at what other students had done. I didn't learn anything I had hoped to, but I did enjoy having a couple of hours of painting and drawing with a live model. Next time I'll save the $40 and just do it at home.
