Dates: Aug 2, 2020

Price: $100 members

Maximum of Six Students to maintain safe, social distancing practices

Steal away for a Sunday afternoon, and join local artist Sarah Rutledge Fischer in a gesture drawing workshop designed to provide both a foundation for beginning figure artists and a refreshing nudge for more experienced artists. Gesture drawing, the art of quickly capturing the essence of a figure with only a handful of lines or shapes, is foundational to most forms of figurative art. Yet, many artists have never had the chance to study it with a live model, and even those who did have mostly left the practice to their student years. It’s time to dive back in.

Working with a lightly clothed model, Sarah will guide students through different methods of using line and shape to quickly capture the essence of a human form.

Absolutely no experience necessary.

Large Newsprint pad – 18″x24″ (drawing grade paper also fine)

Graphite pencils – variety of hardness (recommend 2b,4b, and 6b)

Vine or Willow Charcoal

Hard Charcoal pencil

Kneaded Eraser (recommend kneaded eraser)

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.
