Figure Sketching

BSoFA Figure Sketching classes are designed to be an integral part of our academy program. Students interested in life drawing and painting are invited to attend. 

Artistic Anatomy

Learn an approach to figure sketching that was developed by George Bridgman during his years as head figure instructor at the Art Students League in New York.

Ben Harden explains the nuts and bolts of human anatomy using examples from Bridgman's many books.

Students will sketch their own versions of artistic anatomy and become familiar with the basic structure of the human form.

Classes meet from 6-8 on Wednesdays.

All materials will be provided as part of the class fee.

Thursday Figure SKETCHING

The Thursday evening figure sketching class offers students an opportunity to learn more about the human form while exploring different methods of figure sketching that are used in other classical figure and portait classes. Quick poses will extend into longer poses that are repeated for two sessions.

Ben Harden guides students through the challenges of learning how to figure sketch using pencil. Classes meet from 6-8 on Thursdays

All materials will be provided as part of the class fee.
