Figure Sketching Made Simple

Click here to enroll in the class at a special price!

This online class on the C platform is designed specifically for anyone who is intimidated by the idea of sketching figures from life. Instead of relying on anatomy study and proportions, you will jump right in and draw freely and gesturally to get past your fear of drawing figures. 

As you move through the 6 lesson series you will learn to draw using a technique called line-of-action capture, and will draw figures full of life and energy. I use video to teach the techniques I use to sketch on location, so this is a great class for urban sketchers, plein air painters and sketchbook artists.

The Craftsy platform encourages you to post your work and ask questions as you work through your lessons. I’ll answer all your questions and would love to see your work. And, I promise you will have fun working through these lessons.
