Leslie Park (aka Ressuri) is a native Angeleno who was lucky enough to have grown up during the second golden age of animation along with re-runs of the classics. With a head full of dreams and heart full of passion, she decided to chase after her love of animation and spearhead her career for storyboarding. Today, Leslie is an adjunct professor at Woodbury University teaching intro to storyboarding. She graduated with BFA from Art Center College of Design in illustration-entertainment and has worked as a freelance layout artist, character artist and visual designer. She is currently a storyboard artist for both commercial live-action and animation.

Prerequisite: none 2 hour workshop. Join in for one that works best for you! This is a great beginner level course for all. Figure drawing is the pinnacle of foundational art. Together we will go over learning how to create quick gestural drawings of the anatomical figure. I will go over form thinking through perspective and how to break down the figure to basic shapes. We will do quick overviews weight shift and postures, line of action, exaggeration, shape simplification, and joint marking. I will explain the benefit of time-tracking with short poses. This class will help you think quickly and get comfortable with figure drawing without getting caught up in the little details. It’s perfect for those who want to build up basic level training for animation, illustration, storyboarding or just those interested in drawing loose. Note: Figure drawing is best understood by understanding the nude figure so our studies will mainly be on the nude figure. Materials needed: • Digital drawing app (photoshop/ ipad/etc) • For those working traditional, charcoal pencil (prang paper soft charcoal) or soft wooden charcoal, newsprint sketch pad 18”x24” or sketchbook of 11x14.

I made a lot of progress after taking Leslie's class, Leslie is a very skilled and cheerful instructor, and I'm recommending taking her class to anyone who wants to learn how to do a gestural drawing.
