Composition Through Still Life
Nov
1
to Nov 4

Composition Through Still Life

  • Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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.

Structure of the Figure: Block-In Boot Camp
Jan
25
to Jan 27

Structure of the Figure: Block-In Boot Camp

When we look at figure drawings we can be seduced by lyrical line work or beautifully rendered form, but those are the surface features— the icing on the cake. In this workshop we are going to do the hard work of building a solid underlying structure. We will slow down and work on open line drawings that allow us to build up to a high level of accuracy. We will focus on proportion, internal structure, basic anatomy, and creating the illusion of a 3-dimensional figure. This is a chance to practice again and again the first steps of a longer drawing (which we will do in the next workshops). We will work from 20 minute poses up to a 6 hour pose.

$425 for the three-day workshop (model fee included). Email zoey@zoeyfrank.com to register. 

 

During 2019 I will be teaching a year-long figure series that builds from one workshop to the next. We will do figure drawing in the spring and figure painting in the fall. Students are encouraged to take all of the workshops as a progressive course, but each three-day workshop can also be taken independently. In order to get the most out of the course students can work on their own figure projects outside of class and bring those projects in each month for a critique.

Academic Figure Drawing: Long Pose
Feb

to Feb 24

Academic Figure Drawing: Long Pose

Over the the course of an 18 hour pose we will build from a linear block-in up to a rendered figure drawing. We will slow down in order to find greater accuracy over time. Building on the previous workshop we will focus will be on proportion, anatomy, and constructing 3-dimensional structure. Once the block-in is established we will focus on turning form: rendering the figure section by section, looking at how the smaller forms fit in the context of the larger movements from dark to light across the figure.

Portrait Drawing
Mar
29
to Mar 31

Portrait Drawing

Let’s face it—constructing the head deserves some extra time. During one 18 hour pose we will develop a fully rendered portrait drawing. We will have 2 models for this workshop so that students are able make close observations of the face. The focus will be on the structure of the whole head and on how the features fit within the larger structure of the skull. We will discuss proportion, anatomy, and how to creep up on finding a likeness.

Color Through Still Life
Apr
8
to Apr 10

Color Through Still Life

Over the course of a three-day workshop we will make a series of color poster studies. We will work small (under 8 x 10”), and place down planes of color, simplifying away all the extraneous detail. Each study will be done in 3 hours and will explore a different approach to color. We will experiment with a warm/cool palette, a 3-color palette, complementary colors, high chroma, play with how one color might read as 2 different colors based on the relationships around it. We will talk about how color can be used to organize composition. The workshop will be taught through slide lectures, demos, and individual and group critique. 

Full cost of this workshop is $520. A 50% deposit is required to hold a spot. Refund policies can be found on this website. Please contact artworkshopsboulder@gmail.com with questions or to register.

The Figure in Time and Space
Apr
26
to Apr 28

The Figure in Time and Space

Using traditional drawing skills along with concepts from modernism we will explore an embodied understanding of the figure. We will look at the figure in relationship to the environment, and we will discuss mark-making, gesture, and how we might convey emotion through the figure. This is a chance to try working with different drawing materials (ink wash, charcoal, pastel pencils etc.), and to try different approaches to building up a drawing.

Figure in the Environment
Sep
13
to Sep 15

Figure in the Environment

This workshop will explore how the figure interacts with its environment. We will look at the big picture and at the spatial relationships that situate a figure in its context. We will discuss how the figure can either function as the focal point or be subdued to fit within an overarching motif. Working from observation in oils, we will make small painted studies to hone in on composition, and then work on one larger painting over the 3 days. Focus will be placed on finding accurate value and color relationships that build a complete image. The course will be taught through lecture, demonstration and individual critique.

Constructing the Portrait
Mar
9
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
