Lay-ins are the first 20 minutes of a drawing. A lay-in represents the initial plan over which the rendering will be placed. Without a good lay-in a great finish is impossible. Students will concentrate on drawing 20 minute figure lay-ins as we work on concepts such as the abstraction, edge mapping and dynamics. Great fundamental class. Beneficial to all levels.

Brian Knox began studying full time at the atelier in 2012 and began teaching in 2015. As a student his emphasis was on logical and simple head and figure construction. As an instructor his dedication to teaching full time has allowed him to focus on finding clear explanations for complicated concepts and, when combined with his gestural/structural approach to head and figure drawing, has helped countless students tackle difficult subjects.
