"Goddess" by Joshua Langstaff


This class is based on the classical atelier system of training painters that dates back to the French Academy of the 19th century. Artists as disparate as Jean- Léon Gérôme, John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt and Pablo Picasso all trained in this system. In class we will focus on developing the skills to accurately represent the figure in pencil or paint. Students will work with a live model while creating an academic figure drawing/painting. Students will first focus on the importance of blocking-in shapes correctly. After accurately indicating light and dark shapes, students will slowly develop form and create one finished picture. New students will work in pencil or charcoal. Returning students may choose to work in oils. This is intended as a continuing class and is open to all levels.
