Wethersfield Academy for the Arts: Wethersfield, CT

Nov. 8-10, 3-Day Workshop

9:30am - 4:30pm

In this portrait workshop, students will draw the portrait from a single pose. The sessions will consist of developing a linear drawing with graphite on paper to establish an accurate likeness, proportions, and structure. The students will then begin modeling the form in a highly rational method, slowly developing each area based on an understanding of the effect of light on form. Some topics that will be discussed in length are comparative measuring, shape finding, anatomy of the skull, light and form. Kathryn will demonstrate each stage of the process briefly as well as give each student individual critiques throughout each session. Beginning to advanced artists are welcome. The model fee is included in the price of the workshop.

This class will give students a place to experiment and explore developing a painting with a fully composed scene. Working with a live model and an environment designed by the instructors, artists will work through the stages of completing a painting in the indirect painting method. Katie and Tsultrim will rotate teaching and demoing. They will meet each student at their current skill level while focusing on drawing and capturing a likeness, structure and anatomy, color and form modeling, as well as composition and design. Some drawing experience is recommended.
Artists may take just the morning, afternoon or all day.
The fall session will have two model poses. Artists may take the class all day or half day for one or both poses. Priority will go to artists registering for the full session.
