Using the Metropolitan Museum’s drawing collection as inspiration, we will be working two days from the model in Studio 6 and one day drawing from selected artwork (Degas, Ingres, Cezanne, Boucher, Watteau) in the Drawing Study Room of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The workshop is open to all levels and beginners are welcome. In the studi
This collaborative workshop is designed to provide a greater understanding of the visual and structural elements that compose the human portrait. Through a strategic approach to perceiving and translating visual phenomena, we can begin to create a blueprint for how we organize disparate visual elements to form a unified and holistic portrait.
Working from the life model, participants will explore the craft of representational figure drawing and will learn techniques by which to develop solid, naturalistic figure drawings. Through demonstrations and hands-on practice we will consider an approach aimed at increasing skills of perceptual observation and manual application while suggesting
Ever wonder how those beautiful Michelangelo sketches are made? It's not genius or talent, but specific techniques and skills. We'll start with some simple warm ups to get that hand-eye coordination flowing and then delve closely into human anatomy to work towards a very realistic figure.We'll be drawing from Michelangelo's beautiful sketches and t
In this workshop, students will draw the life-size figure on six-foot lengths of paper. Attention will be devoted to quality of line, observation of the rhythms of the standing figure, proportion, and modeling of sculptural forms through value. Topics of discussion and demonstration will include the initial blocking-in of the drawing, use of lines
Working from the life model, this one week class will offer the student the chance to develop a single portrait painting in oil. The instructor will outline an 'Indirect Painting' method, describing a clear progression from drawing in pencil on paper through to the execution of the final pass of "form painting".Through demonstrations and hands
Students will learn the skills and techniques for charcoal drawing. Ever wonder how those beautiful Michelangelo sketches are made? It's not genius or talent, but can be broken down into clear technique and skills. Pick out your favorite Michelangelo (or Leonardo if you prefer the anatomy) sketch and we can reproduce it together in this class.The c

The instructor will work with the students on an individual basis, meeting them at their own level. He will introduce varied approaches and techniques to the beginner, while advanced students will be encouraged to develop ideas beyond basic technique. Designed for all levels, instruction will incorporate a diversity of model types in long and short
This class gives students an in-depth look at the forms and structures of the body as well as methods of using anatomical information to create beautiful and accurate figure drawings from observation and imagination. Topics are introduced in a lecture each week and investigated through drawing from the skeleton, casts, and the live model. First qu
This class will focus on both an analytical and emotive approach to painting the human figure with an emphasis on color and value relationships in a related atmosphere. The class will consist of a single long pose in both cool and warm light. The development of form through an observation and interpretation of plane shifts projecting and reced
Learn the basic steps of drawing and sketching the body in both genders. Hard points are studied along with head renderings and constructive format for poses. Small and large displays will be rendered using graphite, pencil, conte, pens and ink.
Learn about the structures that build the human form to give your drawings a real sense of life. Understand the human form thoroughly through images and live models. Supply List: Click here to view list.
This class focuses on developing the student’s understanding of the structural and anatomical components of the human figure. For the first half of each class the instructor gives a lecture and demonstration, drawing specific areas of the body’s anatomy in detail. Emphasis is placed on fostering an organized, three-dimensional concept of t
The aim of this workshop is to gain a greater awareness of the structures and movements of the hands and feet. The hands and feet initiate and complete the body's response to intended action. Furthermore, hands and feet should not be neglected as carriers of emotion over the overt visual cues of the face: they contain expressive power in spite of w
This workshop focuses on the methods and tools needed to draw a portrait with accuracy and feeling. Students learn to capture the likeness and unique personality of the sitter by carefully observing the subtleties of the human face. Composition, perspective, proportions and the effects of light and dark will be explored. Emphasis will be placed on
The distinctive features that make the sitter unique will be made apparent through the use of a custom-designed grid and other easy-to-use tools. Various keys to reproducing accurate proportions of the head will be presented to help the student gain insight into how to portray a likeness. The workshop includes demos, handouts and personalized criti
Explore the human form through drawing. Through daily talks and demonstrations, you’ll learn anatomy, form, concepts, proportion, structure, composition and design. Work from the model to build a basic foundation in figurative drawing that will give you the tools necessary for exploring personal expression.
This class will teach the skills necessary to approach figure drawing. Students will learn basic shading techniques, expression of line, building solid planes, portrait construction, and a variety of other topics, through lectures and examples. Working with a life model, poses will range from quick gesture poses to longer poses. Anatomy will be ta
Students will be guided to a complete understanding of anatomy, color harmony, and unity of light through a traditional process that leads the student from a quick sketch to a finished painting. Advance your skills in drawing and painting through a complete understanding of anatomy, color harmony, and unity of light. By working daily with a live m
