Mixed Media Figure Drawing & Painting (Los Angeles)

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Explore contemporary figure drawing, painting and mixed media using graphite, charcoal, pastel, acrylic, and collage. Experiment with different approaches for developing the human form such as realism, expressionism and abstraction. Emphasis is placed on observation, structure, line quality, volume, composition, technique, experimentation, and originality. Discussions, art historical examples, and demonstration are all a part of the curriculum.

Students work from a model and respond and manipulate their chosen mediums to arrive at a dynamic and unique solution. The focus is on the process of creating a drawing, painting or mixed media piece of art.

Students are asked to balance risk-taking and exploration with things that they already know how to do well. Students are encouraged to take their work beyond just making pretty pictures or technically proficient pictures by attempting to produce work that is as fun and interesting for them to create as they are for people to look at.

The goal for a student in my class is to create work that is fresh, vital and alive, as opposed to work that is static or copied. Inherent in each piece is the search for the right line, shape, color, value, texture and edge.

The finished piece will be a record of that journey.

Student furnishes their own supplies and surfaces to work on. A suggested (recommended) supply list will be provided once you are enrolled.

EXPERIENCE LEVEL

Students have a basic understanding of the figure as the foundation of figure drawing is not taught in this class.

Our goal will be to learn how to create more compelling, visually interesting, and interpretive work. Learn different techniques and methods used by me and other artists, and apply them to your own creations. This workshop will offer demonstrations, discussions, critiques and plenty of creative time. Be prepared to elevate the quality, design and aesthetics of your work.

Our working surfaces will be considered playgrounds where desire, chance, experimentation, risk-taking, media, layering and surface will all be engaged in a process, thus creating an exciting experience for each artist.

This workshop is about exploring figure drawing and painting as a creative, expressive activity. The main goal is to encourage students to step outside their comfort zone. The students only expectations should be to give themselves the opportunity to learn something new and have a whole lot of fun.

There are four components to this workshop:

  1. The Figure by Itself (embellishing the pose, exaggeration, movement, rhythm, shape, color)
  2. Technique
  3. Composition
  4. Figure in An Environment (foreground, middle ground, background)

If you are looking for a fresh perspective for your creativity, an energy boost for your drawings and paintings, and a dynamic workshop experience, then this is the workshop for you.

Student furnishes their own supplies and surfaces to work on. A suggested (recommended) supply list will be provided once you are enrolled.

Mixed Media Techniques and Explorations (Figure Drawing and Painting)

3-Day Workshop
