Head Building 1
June 3-7, 2024
This workshop will focus on a practical approach to drawing the head from all sides. Anatomy will be covered and will includes the skull, neck and shoulders. First, students will familiarize themselves with the skeleton 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 head in three-dimensional space. Drawing from the live model will offer the students the opportunity to put these lessons into practice.
Head Building 2
June 10-14, 2024
This second workshop will focus on a practical approach to drawing the head, neck and shoulders with the additional study of the major muscles in these areas. Students will again familiarize themselves with the skull and 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 head, neck and shoulders 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 with the model 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.
