Gesture Drawing

Taught by Raj Bunnag
Duke Create poster

About the Workshop

This workshop will cover foreshortening, proportions, and how to start capturing the body in motion or action. Students will leave knowing how to draw a human or at least know how to look at the human body and know how to transfer that to a page. No drawing experience required! If all you can draw is stick figures, you will at least leave this 2 hour workshop knowing how to draw proportionate block people. Gesture drawing is a skill that all artists should work on and is a great tool in the illustrators tool belt.
