LINE AND MASS: THE FIGURE AND PORTRAIT EXPLORED IN DRAWING AND PAINTING
This workshop will explore both the organized and elegant manner of classical drawing, and the dynamic, fresh approach of alla prima painting. Though each style has a distinctive character, together they provide the artist with a more complete understanding of artistic technique. The first day will focus on drawing methods with an emphasis on form and anatomy. The final two days will concentrate on the spirited technique of alla prima, which will center on color and paint dynamics. Demonstrations will be given each day that will illustrate each approach.
