Dear Gail:

To teach figure drawing I always start with a study of the human anatomy.
Then we go into gesture drawing, with students taking turns "modeling" for the
class. After gesture drawing they are ready to add details over that. I
teach how to draw with the right hemisphere of the brain as well. Hope this
