June 5-9 Torso - Front of Trunk
Model modestly covered
This workshop will focus on a practical approach to drawing the torso from the front, including the chest, abdomen, hips, and shoulders. First, students will familiarize themselves with the skeleton and musculature of the trunk by copying simplified diagrams. Next, students will examine Old Master drawings to understand how they applied this basic anatomical knowledge to describe the masses of the human figure clearly and effectively. After learning these simplified forms, students will use them in their own drawings from observation. Study from a plaster cast will help students better understand the orientation of the forms of the torso in three-dimensional space and will introduce them to strategies for communicating believable, expressive poses. Finally, drawing from the live model will offer the students the opportunity to put these lessons into practice.
June 12-16 Torso - Back of Trunk
This second workshop will focus on a practical approach to drawing the torso from the back, including the neck, shoulders, and the upper and lower back. Students will again familiarize themselves with the skeleton and musculature of the back by copying simplified diagrams. Students will then examine Old Master drawings to understand how they applied this basic anatomical knowledge to describe the masses of the back clearly and effectively. This will be followed by drawing from observation, including plaster casts and the live model. Study from the cast will help students better understand the orientation of the forms of the back in three-dimensional space and will introduce them to strategies for communicating believable, expressive poses. Finally, life drawing will offer the students the opportunity to put these lessons into practice.
Students may enroll in one or both workshops. Students will receive a more detailed schedule of events one week prior to workshop.
Students will bring bag lunch from home. Water is provided.
Cancelation policy: $50 non-refundable within 10 days of workshop.
