“Covert Characters Life Drawing” is a social and unpretentious life drawing class. We cater to both professional illustrators and first timers.
The 90-minute class is broken into two parts, the first hour focusing on quick sketches, starting with 30 second, 2 minute and 5 minute poses. After a quick break we move onto 10 and 15 minute poses where students can be more experimental with other media such as chalk and oil pastels or more expressive illustration
Occasional suggestions are made throughout the class to experiment with observational methods and sketching techniques. Tips and techniques are also posted on social media prior to events: https://www.facebook.com/CovertCharacters?fref=ts
Cindy Hanara is a trained Fashion / Costume Designer and stylist with a penchant for illustration and graphics.
After working various roles within the fashion industry for the last 10 years, she has more recently been a freelance graphic designer for various fashion wholesalers. With having such a multi faceted job title being able to quickly communicate visual ideas is necessary.
Cindy hopes to provide a fun and encouraging environment to get you back into the swing of simple observational drawing.
I learned about human body's proportions, that I didn't even know! and being terrible at drawing (me) is not that bad, we all have our unique style, there is no good and bad, it's just different. ;)
Tips so that you can be better than you thought. It is a great way to move out of the day's mindset and shift gears and relax.
I had a lot of fun drawing the different poses. No pressure to create a masterpiece or anything like that. Just draw as you please. Highly recommended :)
