- Classic Atelier Strategies for Any Artist
September 25, 2019 - November 13, 2019
9:30 am - 12:00 pm
This class will teach time-tested classical atelier projects, useful for any artist, even those with no previous training. This “old made new again” approach to art training is very popular today. It can help any artist add valuable skills to his toolbox and can help improve accuracy in his work, no matter what style or genre he works in.
Atelier projects begin with pencil work with one “sight-size project,” next, a “copy a master-work” drawing, and finally, one “relational drawing,” either in charcoal or pencil, of plaster casts or still life objects. Then, using these atelier skills, future classes will move on to relational atelier painting in oil. For these six weeks, we execute classical drawing projects using pencil (or charcoal), and we work standing at easels.
Class limited to 8 students.
