Jesús Villareal-Drawing the Figure in the Academic Tradition - Naples, Florida - March 13-16, 2020

Sale price Price $800.00 Regular price

The study of the human figure is fundamental to the development of any artist. In this course we will be exploring techniques and methods used during the 19th Century Academies and “Ateliers.” Students will be taught the sight-size method of measurement in order to view the subject accurately and translate three-dimensional forms in two-dimensions. Concentrating for the whole course on one pose, students will draw the live model in charcoal, looking for the basic shapes and patterns of light and dark. Students will be guided in a step-by-step process through each stage of the drawing, from the construct or “block-in,” to the rendering and finished stage. Value, composition, gesture, proportion and anatomy will all be discussed and demonstrated. All levels are welcome.

This is a 4 day workshop.
