Drawing Class Tackles the “Illusion of Life”

By Susan Santiago

Galeria San Francisco, located in the Fábrica Aurora, is pleased to announce the offering of a new drawing class intended for both experienced artists and amateurs.

Hope Palmer has been an instructor for many years, both at the high school and at the university level. Many of her students flourished and went on to successful careers in the arts. She enjoys the communication that comes with teaching and with motivating her students to keep working and have insights unique to our time.

It is energy well spent. Palmer believes the discipline of drawing the figure develops from a study of anatomy, proportion, balance, and movement. She also knows that in the end, it is the drawing of a human being that is the artist’s first consideration. To achieve success, a good background in anatomy, in combination with hard work and following your feelings, will eventually produce positive results.

Each class clearly explains the principles of drawing the figure. It provides plenty of practical information to enable artists to explore all the possibilities of life drawing as well as building up a wide range of skills in all mark-making media. Each class is challenging, and time passes rapidly. You will be amazed at how quickly your portfolio of images multiplies. As the artist Frances Bacon states: “If you are going to decide to become an artist, you have got to decide that you are not afraid of making a fool of yourself.”

The class is currently offered on Friday afternoons from 1 to 4pm. An additional morning class will be offered if there is a demand. Please contact the gallery for more information.
