Life Drawing

Thursdays, 8 weeks
To
7:00 pm
9:30 pm

Drawing the human form is the ultimate test for any student interested in drawing mastery. This course isn't about copying what you see on the model but learning to see and respond to each pose a model takes. Students in this class will begin to feel the rhythms of movement as they draw, gradually building up their knowledge of form and anatomy to create energetic drawings of the human-machine. Special attention will be given to understanding gesture; volume and the three-movable masses; anatomical landmarks, and more. Get ready to have your hands covered in charcoal in this fast-paced class. Open to all skill levels.

Students should bring:

  • 18x24 XL Canson Recycled pad
  • Medium vine charcoal
  • HB and 6B general’s charcoal pencil
  • Pitts oil pencil soft, medium, and extra soft
  • Kneaded eraser
  • Hard white eraser
  • An X-Acto blade with refills

Julian Tejera

Born and raised in NJ, Julian Tejera has seldom gone a day without pencil in hand. Receiving his BFA in illustration from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in 2008, he worked as a freelance and portrait artist for a number of years. He later attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, graduating in 2015 with an MFA in painting.

While working at MAM, Julian discovered a passion for teaching, leading to the start of a career as a sought-after art instructor for teens and adults. 

His artwork seeks to draw the viewer into the quiet moments of his figurative subject matter, using strong design and technique to lead the eye around the picture plane and weave a visual narrative.
