How many modules are in the class?

The figure drawing class consists of 9 modules that are based on each other. The modules are focused on different topics of figure drawing. In the course of the gang drawing – we are diving into these different topics and study them in depth with lots of different examples and drawing methods.


What supplies will I need for the class?

You won’t need a lot of material. Basically you can learn drawing by only using a pencil and a sheet of paper. Or a pen.

In this class, I am using a lot of different tools in order to show you the best way possible how to learn figure drawing: 

For sketching I am using pencils, ink pens and a ball-point pen on the sketchbook (for detailed portraits additionally a kneaded eraser). But I am also drawing on the pad and on the graphic tablet. The tools are always different – but the topic and the methods are the same. This means that you can use any tool: you can follow the class digitally or with a simple pencil and a sheet of paper.


How can I show you my drawings in the class?

Below every lesson is a comment field, where you can add your questions or post your drawing and the sketching exercises, so that we can talk about them. We learn so much from each other by sharing our drawings. Additionally you can send me your sketches to my mailbox as well.


What is your refund policy?

You’ll have a full 30 days to see if my figure drawing class is right for you. If you determine that it isn’t, just let mes know and I’ll gladly refund your money. No hassles. No hard feelings.



"Excellent. I enjoyed learning how to draw basic steps to draw human body in motion. Barbara Bauman broke the steps down that made it very easy for a beginner like me. All of her classes are excellent. I now believe I can draw because of Ms. Baumann."

Jiab Wassermann

"As a dyslexic novice- this is "the first" these concepts have gotten through to me. I find this presentation to be uncomplicated, clearly explained and full of helpful techniques. Barbara Thank you for sharing. Greatly appreciated! P.S. I find "the speed of your speaking" to be very helpful also. P.P.S. I'll be watching this many times to cement ;-) Am a happy camper now...
