Composition Through Still Life
Jan
12
to Jan 15

Composition Through Still Life

Use still life to explore composition. We will consider the geometry of the arrangement, viewpoint and balance to build a painting that is structurally considered as a whole unit. We will do a series of painted compositional sketches and also make changes to the setup as we go to find the movement through the piece. Focus will be places on satisfying and accurate drawing, value and color relationships. The workshop will be taught through lecture, demonstration and critique.

Constructing the Portrait
Mar

to Mar 11

Constructing the Portrait

This workshop will focus on one portrait pose from direct observation over the course of three days. We will do small value studies to arrange the composition of light and shadow, and color studies to explore the composition of color masses, discussing how these decisions work to convey mood and character. We will begin with an underpainting the first day and then build into the final painting with opaque paint in 2 subsequent sessions. The workshop will be instructed through lecture, demonstration, individual and group critique.

8 week Drawing from the Figure
Oct
8
to Nov 26

8 week Drawing from the Figure

Drawing is the foundation of artistic practice, and the skills learned from the figure will allow you to draw just about anything else. In this course we will work to accurately construct the figure from direct observation. Over 8 weeks we will build from short gestures to longer sustained poses. You will gain a better understanding of proportion, anatomy, volume, weight and visual flow through the body. We will do exercises to help simplify what we see and understand the mass of the figure in space. Each session will be taught through demonstration, brief lectures and one-on-one feedback. Classes sizes are small and can accommodate all levels.

October 8th - November 26th
Sundays, 10am - 1pm 

$300 for 8 sessions, with a model fee TBD. Please email to register zoey@zoeyfrank.com
