ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
The Essentials of Anatomy offers the artist a thorough understanding of the structure and movement of the human figure along with techniques of visualization that will enable the artist to enjoy the expressive potential that figure drawing provides. A schematic of the anatomical figure is created and divided into eight zones. These zones constitute the torso and spine, the head, the brachia, the forearm, the hand, the thigh, the lower leg, and the foot. Each zone is explored in terms of its anatomy, mechanics, and musculature. Through lectures, demonstrations, and drawing from the live model, the artist integrates this information into a new drawing regimen or workflow.
Keith Gunderson is an artist whose work focuses on the depiction of the landscape and the figurative inhabitants therein, as expressed through the immediate process of plein air.

He has studied with such notable instructors as Frank Mason, David Leffel, George Sotos, Harry Carmean, and Gustav Rehberger. Keith’s work has been featured in international publications and media.
