If you can draw a basic stick figure, then you already have the building blocks you need to learn to draw the human form.  Join local figurative artist Sarah Rutledge Fischer and learn to use your power of observation and a few simple concepts to begin building expressive human figures on the page.


Already have some experience drawing the human figure?  Come review basic concepts and push yourself to find more expression and connection in what your draw.


This class will work with live, unclothed models and focus on concepts such as gesture, proportion, shape, line, and value.  All experience levels welcome and celebrated.

Sarah Rutledge Fischer is a figurative artist living and working in Fairhope, AL.  Sarah is largely self-taught, acquiring most of her arts education at the easel, working beside other artists in figure study groups. The human figure is at the core of Sarah’s art, and her belief that all bodies are good bodies is on display in the variety of shape and form celebrated in beauty within her work. Her figures often come to the page with a story to tell, and in recent shows, Sarah has been pleased to discover that people connect strongly with these stories.
