Alex Woo's Gesture Drawing 101



I would like to take a moment to plug Alex Woo's new gesture drawing class. Alex is a good friend of mine, a fellow Pixarian and a heck of an artist. You may remember him as the director of the Rex Steele animated short.
Anyway, Alex has been teaching the gesture drawing class at Pixar for a while now and has decided to adapt his class into an 8 week curriculum that will be offered to the public for the first time.

Here are the details:

The course will consist of 8 classes over the course of 8 weeks. The curriculum will be as follows:

Week 1: Line - Distilling the pose to its essence
Week 2: Shape - Abstracting the pose
Week 3: Silhouette - A clear read
Week 4; Space - Creating depth and dynamics
Week 5: Exaggeration - Pushing and pulling a drawing
Week 6: Extrapolation - Seeing beyond the surface
Week 7: Story - Giving your drawings context
Week 8: Final Review

The class will meet on Thursdays from 7pm-9pm at 160 Folsom Street in San Francisco starting June 16th and ending August 4th, 2011.

Tuition will be $800 for the entire course (all materials will be provided).

Class size will be limited to 12 students.

If you're interested and/or would like more information, you can email Alex at alex@woohoopictures.com.

It would be nice if this course is put on Schoolism, for us folks who don't live in the area.

Dear Bill...I am a huge fan of your work and read your blog regularly! I was actually part of the catering/serving staff at the wedding (I think it was you) you and your wife attended in Toronto this past weekend. I wanted to intruduce myself but thought it was a bit inappropriate since I was working.

Hope you guys had fun.....all the best . Charmaine

Hi Charmaine,
Yup that was me alright. You should have introduced yourself I wouldn't have minded. A wedding is a party after all. Nice drawings on your blog, very appealing and very feminine. The food and service at the wedding were good too ;)
