Figure Drawing Drop-In 2M22
Want to develop your drawing skills?
We'll provide a live figure model at each session and a skilled, professional artist to instruct (developing artists) or critique (experienced artists).
Want to work independently? You are welcome to.
Bring your preferred drawing implements (we can recommend some!) and paper; we'll provide the art-boards, easels, and tables.
We'll invite varied body-types and genders to model and encourage dynamic poses each week so you can truly explore the human form.
All experience levels welcome. Open to adults 18+, or, youth with permission of parent or guardian.
Sessions take place every Tuesday evening, attendance at all sessions not required.
*Select number of sessions desired September - December. Tuition based on number of sessions selected. Discount applied to multiple sessions.
Both Rob and Brigid did a top-notch job of running this class: they are very qualified and communicate well with the students. The class is always on schedule, with excellent lighting and music, and provides a needed outlet for serious artists. Figure drawing is really important for artists working in many genres.
Rob Stull is an illustrator, curator, designer and creator of comic books. In addition to working through his own studio, Ink on Paper, he has worked over two decades for every major publisher in the industry, including Marvel and DC Comics, where his projects include Spider-Man Adventures, Iron Man, X-Force, Wolverine, Nightwing and more. He also creates art for musicians, radio, television and magazines.
He is featured in the ground-breaking book, Black Comix: African American Independent Comics, Art and Culture, and in The History of American Graffiti. He created and curated Sequential Art: The Next Step, a traveling exhibition spotlighting the contributions of African Americans to mainstream comic book art and popular culture, featured at the National Center of Afro-American Artists (Boston), Words and Pictures Museum (Northampton MA), Afro-American Cultural Center (Charlotte NC), Tubman Museum (Macon GA) and elsewhere, and his work has also been shown in galleries around the United States.
He holds a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
“I have always believed that all art is relative. Sequential Art is a storytelling medium, but most visual art is telling a story of some kind.”
Brigid Watson was born in Kent, Ohio. She has undergraduate degrees from Tufts/ SMFA and a Masters in Painting from NYU/Venice, Italy. She is a professional artist and shows nationally. She has been the recipient of several grants including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Provincetown Museum, and the Mass Cultural Council.
