Adult (age 16+), In Person, Classes, Yard School of Art, Drawing & Illustration, Julian Tejera

Life Drawing

Thursdays, 10 weeks
7:00 pm
9:30 pm
No Class on Thursday, November 23

Sketch directly from the figure to explore the human form and anatomy. The class is open to both new and experienced students who may explore variation and invention when interpreting a pose. Working from a nude model, we will focus on students’ sense of proportion and scale relationships to accurately depict the human form. This class is especially useful for strengthening the portfolio of students 16 and older who need life drawing experience not provided in the high school art curriculum.

Julian Tejera's Headshot

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.
