Learn from the master!  This workshop will be focused on both short and long pose charcoal drawings from life models. Different techniques mentioned in Henry's book, Henry Yan's Figure Drawing, Techniques and Tips, will also be introduced and practiced in class.

Other than techniques, students will also be encouraged to find their own way of seeking beauty from each pose when practice, and interpret what they found with a personal artistic approach instead of just copying.

Lots of demos and individual help will show students how to create beautiful line works, methods of placing different tones to render three dimensionally; design realistic works with supporting abstract elements; and the way to do drawings with painterly approach.  Techniques in Henry Yan's Figure Drawing book will be introduced and practiced.
