December 10 – 14, 2012 (FIVE DAY INTENSIVE WORKSHOP)


This five day intensive figure study workshop will focus on various aspects of anatomy and movement in the human form. Featuring a live model each session, students will render the human form in various mediums of drawing and painting of their choosing. Students will be encouraged to create a body of artwork throughout the week in a range of mediums, focusing on individual development in figurative art. We will discuss figurative work throughout art history to springboard sessions focusing on the face, hands and feet, the body in movement, chiaroscuro (light and shadow), and skin tones and colors.
