Cast Drawing and Painting by Andy Nabong  -- Sep/Oct 2020

This class will run 8 Sunday mornings (9:30 AM - 12:30 PM) from 30 August to 18 October 2020. This class is for beginners and advance artist. Everyone works at their own pace. We will follow a classical approach on how to see and understand form. With a drawing cast you have a colorless still standing model which makes it easier to observe the interaction of form and light. We will investigate how to approach an initial linear drawing (block-in) focusing on various methods to ensure accuracy in shape, proportion and gesture. We will then move to modeling form, 3-dimensional, as we discuss the fundamentals on how light works and how to render it onto a 2-dimensional surface. During this process, artists will learn to think sculptural by utilizing a conceptual understanding of how light falls on their cast. This will allow for a greater sense of depth and realism in their finished drawings/paintings.
