Quick Gesture Drawing from Life
The single most important part of figure drawing is gesture, but remember, gesture drawings are not perfect! Erin has dedicated this lesson to the core principles that make fantastic gestures: bending, silhouette outlines, exaggeration, and confident line drawing. Practice a variety of poses demonstrating your new skills, with each time limit teaching you what should be included and what should be left out. If you want more dynamic, loose, and lifelike figures, Erin is the instructor for you. ( 3+ hours)

Erin Meads was raised in Bountiful, Utah. Her work is mainly figurative in nature, as she is inspired by Golden-Age illustration and nineteenth century American portraiture. Her art has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the country and her works are housed by collectors widespread. Drawing and painting from life is important to her. She believes the lessons learned from studying this way are invaluable in gaining understanding. She has taught as an adjunct faculty member at Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University, and her gesture drawing book, “The Quick Pose” often serves as a supplemental text to her figure drawing class.
