This class is intended for alumni of my other figure drawing classes. If you have never studied with me and wish to attend to this class, you’ll need to send me a portfolio application (please scroll to the bottom of this page to find out more). This class is intended dive deeper into the materials we’ve covered in other classes, including more practice time, some longer poses, and more advanced knowledge about structure, anatomy and draughtsmanship.
Most classes will be practice time with plenty of one-on-one time with each student, giving guidance, critique and support. I will also demo every few weeks with new concepts to deepen your understanding of the human form.
Class sizes are small so that everyone will have one-on-one time with me by the end of the course.
Who this class is for:
This class is for the serious beginner to advanced artist as long as you have studied with me before. If you want to dive deeper into what we’ve covered before, then this class is for you. This is the first time I’ve held a class like this, and I’m not sure how frequently I’ll be able to do this, so if it’s something you want, grab a seat.
Who am I and what do I know?
I’m Sarah Marie Lacy, and I’m a full-time professional artist and portrait painter. I’ve studied with master artists in France, and have won international awards for my work, which makes me sound very fancy. I am deeply passionate about the work that I do and love sharing it with others and watching my students improve and progress.
What we don’t cover:
I don’t really get into materials, how to use materials, how to sharpen your pencils the best way, etc. The magic is not in the materials, and other artists will do a better job teaching that. This is about getting knowledge of artistic concepts in your hands so you can get to making the work you want to be making. But I’m always happy to answer questions students have!
- An unlined notebook! I don’t do handouts because you won’t learn as much if I just tell you what to do. I want you to make notes of what I’m saying, copy the demos, draw along with me while I talk. You’ll learn so much more this way. (See the science behind it here.)
- A large pad of white paper, anywhere from 16” x 20” to 18” x 24”. It doesn’t have to be the highest quality, although the final 3 classes will be a single pose as we work on deeper concepts, so you may want to use nicer paper for that if you think you’ll be inclined to keep what you do. But for the first 3 classes, we will be doing a lot of practice studies.
- A selection of pencils, from 2B to 6B. I tend to work with a 2B mostly, but some people like having a few to choose from.
- A kneaded eraser
- A white eraser
- A pencil sharpener
- If students want to work in charcoal or on toned paper, please feel free to bring those supplies
