Drawing the Head from A to Z (Mon & Wed, 1 - 4 pm)

Plaster casts give a good opportunity to learn the shape of the human head on a static model without distractions such as hair, colour and tone. A live model will be present during the final three sessions, allowing students to practice and apply the skills they have learned throughout the course.

Limitless Colour (Thurs, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm)
Register Paintings are invariably more than they seem. This short course explains how colours work together in practice and develops some key approaches, such as demystifying colour and mixing for experienced artists and beginners alike. Instruction and coaching will include sound colour theory and a major part will be its application in practical art. For beginners, it will establish touchstone practices and accelerate artistic development. More experienced artists will come away with the confidence to develop new palettes, techniques and break rules with aplomb. Colour takes paintings to giddy heights or sends them to the depths with little in between, the consummate impressionist Claude Monet remarking: “Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.”

9 am - 4 pm Marathon Drawing (Sun, 9 am - 4 pm)
Register Inspired by the New York Studio School and RISD drawing marathon intensives, this class will challenge students to commit themselves to the practice of drawing for a 9-5 work day. This weekend intensive places all students on a common playing field. The class begins by investigating core fundamentals of contour line, value, weight and mark making. Through a whirlwind of fast paced exercises, the drawing intensive class dives into more complex assignments and explorations. Students, confident, advanced or beginners will be forced to step out of their comfort zones and abandon ego and look at their own drawing and art as if they were a stranger to the process. Old habits and comfort ruts will be broken and students will have no choice to push themselves to progress and evolve. The class will work from an elaborate still life and use a variety of drawing materials ranging from charcoal to ink…or even from yardsticks to fingers. By the end of the class, students will have been through a vast gamut of activities that they will undoubtedly have a profound confidence in their drawing fundamentals and ability to assess composition with an advanced degree of mark making, history of value and composition.
