ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
Acquire techniques of artistic anatomy and visualization as well as crafting your own personal artistic figure drawing workflow. Life Drawing Intensive will build new confidence and expertise in your figure drawings.
Working the first day with one model and the second day with two models, participants will have an intensive opportunity to explore the structural and expressive qualities of the figure in pictorial space. Principles of composition and underlying geometry will be addressed through periodic critiques, as will mark, material, contour, edge, and relationship to the page. Students will look at the drawings of Old and Modern Masters such as Tiepolo, Schiele, Modigliani and more. Through concentrated and vigorous engagement with the figure in a dynamic environment the door to invention and transformation begins to open.
