The second seminar builds on the fundamentals of academic drawing but shifts the hierarchies and dynamics of light and shadow.
This is achieved with a change of materials – from charcoal on white paper to charcoal/white chalk on grey paper. This transition is considered a fundamental step before introducing oil paint, which will be presented at a later stage in the third and final seminar of the series.
The participants will go through the fundamental principles of academic drawing from a live model, using different methods of measuring such as the Sight-Size and Comparative Measuring with reference to human anatomy. A combination of presentations and practical exercises will take place in each session.
The sessions focus on the fundamental techniques and the relevant anatomical knowledge necessary for the construction of an accurate human figure.
During this process the participants will be individually guided through demonstrations and critiques so as to develop a better understanding of:
• Blocking and Constructive Lines
• Shadow Line and Shadow Shapes
• Form and Tones
• Light Effect
• Due to the fact that special individual attention will be given to guide participants, the workshop will cater for interested individuals, irrespective of their age, previous knowledge or experience.
-Who can participate:
This workshop is suitable for students preparing a portfolio for Schools of Fine Arts, university students of similar disciplines seeking specialization in specific fields and finally, amateur and professional artists who want to enrich their skillset.
