    There will be an Animal Drawing Course with Marshall Vandruff July 15th-17th from 12pm-7pm.

    If you've ever wondered how masters of drawing can draw a horse leaping or a bear dancing without copying photographs, this crash-course is for you! It will show you how to confidently draw animals from imagination as well as to interpret what you see when drawing from real animals - those mysterious bumps on a lion's limbs will make sense when you know the underlying structure. This course is similar to the Human Anatomy for Artists Seminar but focused on animals. We will compare various types of four-legged animals with humans, always with an emphasis on how to master form in space so they look realistic, alive, and authoritative. If you are interested in taking the workshop with Marshall Vandruff give us a call at 818.708.9232!

    5-Day Painting with a Concept Workshop with Sherrie McGraw

    5-Day Painting with a Concept Workshop 12/10-12/14/08 with Sherrie McGraw!

    At first, learning to paint must include painting things well. Most painters feel they have succeeded in this quest when they can paint the subject convincingly. However, though painting images can be captivating, any thinking person might ask if there is something more than this technical proficiency. When an image compels you to return again and again to examine it, the underlying reason is the concept. Rather than seeing each object as a separate entity, concept establishes a relationship between objects, making something that is greater than the individual parts. This underlying visual message creates a beauty beyond subject matter and is the real reason behind the painting. Abstract visual ideas are less personal and more universal creating a more compelling and sublime painting. The only requirement for this class is a desire to learn.






    Instructor: Sherrie McGraw

    Day: Wed.-Sun., Dec. 10th-14th
    Time: 10am-5pm
    Cost: $795
    Duration: 5 Days
    Hours: 30


    If you would like to register for this workshop, call 818.708.9232. Must register before Nov 26th.
