Grand Central Atelier - Summer Drawing Boot Camp Week 1: Cast

02 July, 2018 to 07 July, 2018

USD 650


Grand Central Atelier
46-06 11th Street, Queens, NY 11101

We will start by discussing how to approach an initial linear drawing (the “block-in”) focusing on the various techniques that we can employ as we strive for accuracy in shape, proportion and gesture.   We will then move straight in to modeling form, three dimensionally, as we discuss the fundamentals and nuances of how light works as well as how to depict it on a two dimensional surface.  During this time students will learn to think about their drawings in sculptural terms by utilizing a conceptual understanding of light fall which will allow for a greater sense of depth and realism in their finished drawings and paintings. 

 
Time will also be spent discussing materials as well as ways to set yourself up for success before you begin your drawing.
 
Artists will be trained to think sculpturally, to make more accurate decisions, and to create drawings and paintings that are true to life.

This workshop will include demonstrations/lectures on each step of the process as well as frequent one on one critiques from the instructor. Students will work at their own pace and will spend the majority of the time working on their own drawings.  However, due to the short time frame, emphasis will be put on fully learning and understanding concepts, rather than creating completely finished works of art. This workshop will be a great opportunity to learn many of the key concepts taught at GCA in a short, condensed time frame.
 
Ideal for beginners or artists looking to hone and strengthen foundational skills.
