Crash into the Human Figure Intensive | Nov 3


One day, 6 hour intensive
9am - 4pm (lunch break 12 - 1)

Upcoming dates:

  • Sunday, November 3



A one day six hour intensive introduction to the representation of the human figure.  We will begin with an overview of materials and techniques, explore exercises geared to get students creating drawings right away, and move into special topics that respond to the needs of class.  Perfect for students with little to no background, as well as students who are looking for a refresher course.  This workshop can be used as a warm-up for the longer form Figure Drawing or Structural Anatomy courses. Students will be asked to bring basic drawing supplies, the model fee is covered by the course fee.

Our courses are for adults only, unless explicit permission has been given by the instructor, and a parent or guardian is also enrolled in the class.

Instructor Katia Kosova

Yekaterina (Katia) Kosova has studied anatomy and figure drawing at the Art Students' League, and has continued to research anatomy in her own self-guided artistic practice. She also teaches the 8 week “Anatomy for the Artist” at Shoestring Studio, a one day intensive on Figure Drawing called “Crash into the Human Figure” and leads the long pose figure drawing sessions on Sundays. Because she is a nerd and a workout enthusiast, she has spent a lot of time reading about and studying anatomy and physiology on her own.  In addition to visual art her interests include writing, the study of Greek and Latin, farming and woodworking.  During the summer she teaches classical Greek at the Latin/Greek Institute at the CUNY graduate center.  Please e-mail her if you have any questions at
