The Nude in Trois Crayons

Taught By Shane Wolf


During this 2-and-a-half-day intensive workshop, Shane Wolf will demonstrate and teach his approach to drawing the nude with the traditional Trois Crayons technique (charcoal, sanguine, and chalk).


Students of this workshop will do a lot of gestural drawing with the trois crayons, as well as have several 3-hour long poses to develop greater depth of form with the technique.


The workshop begins with a Friday evening 3-hour live demonstration by Shane whereby he will show his step-by-step approach to creating a large figure drawing from the nude model. The students will then have all day Saturday and Sunday for instructed time during which Shane will be sharing important information regarding anatomy, proportion, balance, and other essential aspects of figure drawing.


This class only has 10 spots available (so a lot of individual instruction will be given).
