Cast Drawing by Andy Nabong

 

This class will run 8 Sunday mornings from 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM from 8 September to 27 October 2019. Cast drawing is a classical approach to teach the individual on how to see and understand form. With a drawing cast you have a colorless still standing model which makes it much easier to observe the interaction of form and light. We will investigate the essentials of how to approach an initial linear drawing, or “block-in” focusing on the various methods that we can employ as we attempt for accuracy in shape, proportion and gesture. We will then move straight in to modeling form three-dimensionally, as we discuss the fundamentals and distinctions of how light works as well as how to describe it on a two-dimensional surface. During this process, artists will learn to think sculpturally, which will allow for a greater sense of depth and realism in the finished drawings. This class is for beginners and advance artists.

Artistic Anatomy and Elements of Drawing by Klaus Henkelmann

The course will be held over 8 Wednesday evenings from 30 October to 18 December 2019, from 6 - 9 PM.

The class will provide an in-depth study of human anatomy for artists. We will first study the human skeleton, starting with the upper and lower limbs, the torso, the head and then identifying the corresponding muscles. We will then apply this knowledge to the drawing of a male or female life model. The anatomy will be further demonstrated by the various positions taken by the model.

 

This course encourages individuality of expression through an exact and complete analysis of the basic elements of drawing: proportion, light and shade, anatomy, perspective, mass, planes, and design. This class is for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students. Along with lecture demonstrations the instructor works with students individually.

 

Class size will be minimum 8 and maximum 12. Teaching will be in German and English, depending on the needs of the students.

Academic Portrait Painting by Jura Bedic

This 3-day course will run from Friday to Sunday 1-3 Nov from 9:30 am–4:30 pm.

 

The workshop is designed so that the students may understand more clearly the form of the human head. Whether the student is a beginner or more experienced, they will focus on anatomic structure, light effect, creating the illusion of form and a sense of space, as well as the practice of mixing flesh tones using a traditional palette. This course will put emphasis on a step by step process while painting from a live model. In addition to the individual critiques, painting and flesh tone mixing demonstrations will be held to help clarify the method.

Bio: Jura Bedic completed his studies at The Florence Academy of Art in 2002 and became a principal instructor first in the Intensive Drawing Program, then in the Painting Program.  He has participated in group exhibitions in numerous galleries in the United States, as well as alumni exhibitions organized by the Academy in Germany and Florence. Bedic is the winner of the 2001 Art Renewal Center International Scholarship Competition, and his work is featured in an article in American Artist’s “Drawing” Magazine, 2003, “Classical Approaches to the Teaching of Drawing.” In 2007 he won “The best in Show” award in the F.A.A.’s 3rd Annual Alumni Exhibition.
