NYC SUMMER PORTAIT WORKSHOP

Grand Central Atelier

July 31 - August 11, 2017
10am - 5pm (lunch: 1-2pm) • Monday - Friday

$1170 ($585 deposit)

This workshop will begin with a fully developed graphite drawing on paper, which will then be transferred to canvas.  After establishing the value relationships with a mono-chomatic wipe-out, the painting will be fully developed in color.  The painting process will be aided by a pallete, inspired by the Munsell-color-system.  The same pose will be used for a total of 60 hours with the model. All steps of the portrait will be covered from the initial block-in to the final modeling of form.  The physics of light on form will be discussed, as well as color theory. Portrait demonstrations by the instructor as well as individual critiques will guide the student through the process.

Skill: All levels workshop, from beginners to advanced artists.

WEEKLY SATURDAY PORTRAIT

Grand Central Atelier

Saturday Mornings: 9:00-12:00pm (3 hours) 
Lunch break: 12-1pm
Saturday Afternoons: 1:00-5:00pm (4 hours)

In this studio, artists will learn the fundamentals of drawing and painting the portrait with an emphasis on accurate observation.  The same model and pose will be worked on for a series of sessions as artists strive to capture the likeness of the model first in the linear block-in drawing and finally in modeling the effect of light over the form.  Studies will begin with pencil on paper and move on to paint as participants demonstrate greater proficiency. Beginning to advanced artists are welcome.
