With visual artist Courtney Puckett
Wednesday, August 24
This workshop begins with an introduction to yoga philosophy and the gesture drawing technique. Participants gain a deeper understanding of the connection between yoga asanas (poses) and figure drawing by drawing from a live (remote) model that flows through yoga sequences. Some light movement by participants, but this workshop is primarily focused on drawing. Supplies: blank paper and marker/pens.
