Drawing the Figure with Digital Charcoal
with Gary Faigin
10:30am – 12:30pm PT 

A Demonstration from block-in to final rendering!
Gage Artistic Director Gary Faigin demonstrates how the same principals that apply to analog figure drawing translate to the digital domain.  Using tools that are the equivalent of “digital charcoal”, Faigin progresses from a basic block-in of a standing figure, to a summary of the tonal relationships, and then rendering with more detail and luminosity.  Audience members can follow along using charcoal on bond paper, the closest analog equivalent. 

Supply List 

Soft Vine Charcoal
18” x 24” Bond Paper Pad
ChamoisKneaded eraser
Small pencil sharpener or sandpaper pad

2. How to Mass- in COLOR HARMONY using a system of values
3. How to Model forms sculpturally while expressing the LIGHT EFFECT
