Drawing with FORCE

In this 9-week course, author and instructor Mike Mattesi will introduce you to his FORCE drawing methodology. You will learn a figure drawing process rooted in the physics of motion. Mike will go step by step from setting up your drawing space to understanding gravity’s force on the figure. You will learn key elements such as applied force, rhythm, and the leading edge; from there, improve your understanding of the figure and effectively capture it on the page. Through this course, Mike will take drawing the figure beyond just observation and introduce it in a way that relies on physicality.
