Today was the first Saturday of 9 Saturdays at a cast drawing class at Gage Academy. I wished I brought a camera to take some photos at the classroom. The instructor is Susan Bari Price. First 2 hours were spent for introductions and Susan's demo for "block-in". So we got only three 15 min drawing sessions ourselves. The photos above are from my 2nd and 3rd session. You wouldn't recognize what I was trying to draw for the first one if I put it on. Basically we tried figuring out the height vs. width ratio and defining major contours, and refining the lines by measuring relative positions and angles with a skewer. At this stage we're supposed to ignore values and focus only on major shapes.
