The aim of Interpreting the Figure is to enhance self-expression through figure drawing at the same time being mindful of tapping into your five senses. Join Ian de Souza as he takes you step by step through the process of improving your figure drawing skills. You will be encouraged to see and think differently using simple exercises to overcome fear of an end result.
To those who say they are not creative, I say: To cook is to be creative. To draw is to paint; to garden is to write; to dance is to sing. Choose your passion!
