Portrait Drawing / Painting Class

For centuries, portrait drawing was a central part of any curriculum in traditional atelier or academy of art. It always begins with drawing classical casts. Plaster casts are copies of classical sculptures, they offer simplified form, do not move and are white in color, which makes learning the fundamentals of drawing the head much easier.

Students will learn the principles of picture plain, proportion, massing, geometry of organic form, structure, perspective, symmetry, tonal relationships and likeness. This class will consist of three 3-hour cast drawings, one 6-hour cast drawing, one 6-hour life model portrait drawing and one 9-hour life model portrait drawing.

Figure Drawing or Painting Class

Figure drawing is the most demanding and most disciplined endeavor for any student to undertake and is a vital skill for academic and professional success in many areas of art and design. Working from a life model, students will examine the elements of drawing and painting the human figure, which include: gesture, proportions, rhythm, structure, massing, form, tonal relationships, and perspective. This class will begin with one 3-hour short gesture drawing, then three poses in 3 hours, followed by three 3-hour drawings, moving up to 6-hour and 12-hour poses.
