Tired of not knowing how to draw figures? Eliminate uncertainty in drawing, make your drawings strong and fluid, and learn the best technique for overcoming your fear of mistakes. Join this course and gain the ability to draw without hesitation in the most forgiving medium - charcoal! Experience true effortlessness in drawing the human body.

Grasp the concept of pentimenti - the special way to make corrections that will take away your fear of making mistakes. With this technique you will improve your drawing and make it more fluid. You will also become less self-critical about making mistakes: in this technique, all mistakes are temporary and can be corrected any time. 

Artists have used charcoal from prehistoric times. Charcoal is a popular drawing medium of European art ateliers and academies: it is inexpensive and versatile. Charcoal is an excellent choice for a beginner and advanced artist alike. It is a classic drawing material and popular with contemporary masters. Matisse is in-between: he actually reinvented the charcoal technique that we will study. His style stems from the classic rendering of the model, that through multiple reiterations gets transformed into a soft, nuanced and elegant tonal silhouette, which then becomes defined with a few lines. Emulate Matisse’s famous charcoal drawings of female figures and experience for yourself what makes these drawings so masterful.
