Figure Drawing in Watercolor

Back To Shop

Offered entirely online: livestreaming classes and personalized feedback on completed work.

with G Caruso

Learn how to draw the figure in fluid and gestural watercolor.

The dynamic and immediate nature of watercolor is perfectly suited to capture the expressive capacity of the human form. From quick and minimal calligraphic strokes to layered meditative studies, explore diverse watercolor techniques. Gain the tools to develop your own individual poetic language of the human body.

This expressive approach to the human form is a passion for artist and educator G Caruso.  Drawing upon 25 years of watercolor practice plus 15 years of anatomy and figure research, G will share their expertise and support you in developing your own figure drawing practice.

This workshop will include step by step watercolor technique demos (accessible at all levels, even absolute beginners).  Conversations about the nature of representation of the human body on paper, both from a contemporary as well as art historical perspective, will deepen our artistic approaches.

Our Online Workshop Format:

Classes meet via Zoom, livestreaming, and include live demos and step by step instructions from the instructor. Participants will do exercises along with the instructor and have the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback during class time. We keep class sizes small and the atmosphere is interactive and intimate. Participants have the option take a little extra time on their own, at home, to complete the exercises or practice at their own pace, although this is not required. Finished work gets uploaded to a Dropbox folder where the instructor will give individual feedback and answer questions in the comments section. Participants can also comment on each others work in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Recordings from each week’s livestreaming session will be made available to participants.
