    Stuff from Aaron's class

    It took me a while to get around to posting this since we, the students, have no life outside of LAAFA. Not that anyone is complaining; it is just that we are all motivated and BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!

    Dan Thompson will also be joining us here at LAAFA for a five day Portrait and Figure Painting workshop in July. The dates are, Thursday-Monday, July 19th-23rd. Dan will also be doing a Drawing and Painting demo. here at LAAFA, dates to be announced. I have listed a couple images and more info. about the workshop below. Don't miss out on this opportunity to study with one of the great Figurative Artists of our generation.



    Check out the info. on the workshop below!

    Workshop Title: #928 Portrait And Figure Painting from Life

    Instructor: Dan Thompson

    Dates: Thursday - Monday, July 19th-23rd

    Time: 10am-5pm

    Cost: $695

    Register now: Space is limited. 818.708.9232 or www.laafa.org



    Class description:

    Dan Thompson's "Painting the Figure and Portrait from Life" workshop will focus on several problem areas for the contemporary figurative painter from life. Breaking the process of painting and drawing down into phases, rather than steps, and prioritizing the approach, the first theme will be seizing the energy and vitality of the model's pose. This will be followed by a strong push toward perceptual drawing and painting, and the search for a proportional, engaging pattern while forming the design elements. Implying structure in the shapes by challenging empirical knowledge with a theoretical form sense will expand the dialog toward a new principle. The structural aspects will be honed through a drawn or grisaille painted study of the human head. A portrait demonstration will also be conducted within the workshop. The light key, the harmony of color, will build on top of the previous phases, and thereafter emphasis will be placed on the long pose. Within this long pose, a "putting it all together" session will be developed in paint, charcoal or pencil. One on one discussions, as well as studio talks and critical feedback of each participant's work, will simultaneously take place.

    "Great Art begins with a solid foundation. Build your foundation with us."



    Best Wishes,

    Matthew Marchant

    Mission Statement for “The Axis of Art”

    The Axis of Art is a satire, but it is rooted in definite seriousness. The definition of Axis is a “Principle line of development, movement, and direction. The Axis of Art is a call to action for the figurative art world.

    Development: The Los Angeles Academy is dedicated to developing artists, well equipped for the challenges of being a visual communicator in today’s technological culture. We are developing the skills necessary to blossom in all fields of visual media and communication.

    Movement: The figurative art revival movement is something we take seriously. Without solid art training all visual communication suffers. Figurative Art is the principle development tool for study. If one can truly understand and accurately depict the human form, they are able to apply it to any form. With fundamental training lacking in today’s art education arena, we are joining with a few other schools around the country, to bring it back to the forefront!

    Direction: As we head into the future of Art in this country, we do so with great expectations! LAAFA is one of the schools still dedicated to fundamental academic traditions and we move forward in the direction of true artistic achievement!

    LAAFA is developing resources for art students and we hope to have a fully operational Art resource center “The Axis of Art”, by the end of this year! So if you are looking to develop your skill set and be a part of the movement Join “The Axis of Art”.
