    #2401A - Classic Atelier Figure Painting
    Instructor: William Rodgers
    Friday, 10am-3pm

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    The course will follow the methods of the 19th century atelier and the development of a figure painting. It will begin with an understanding of a drawing aspect of the figure. After establishing the firm foundation of the drawing of the figure, all of the aspects of the figure painting will be employed; the value, color, modeling of the form, and how to finish a figure painting. You will be using a 19th century figure palette.

    #8002 - Handmade Sketchbook-Making Followed by Sketching on Location w/Various Media
    Instructor: Kirk Shinmoto
    Sunday, 1pm-4pm


    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This class will consist of two sections. The first 3 weeks will be dedicated learning how to bind your own sketchbook in a variety of stitches. We will then take that sketchbook made in class and draw on location. Every other week there will be in class exercises and a lecture discussing various sketching techniques and different media.

    #2999 - 10 Painting Demos by 10 Different Figurative Artists
    Instructor: Various
    Saturday, 1pm-4pm


    10 different figurative painters will paint the head/figure for these 10 different classes. You will be exposed to 10 very good, but very different approaches to how artists block in and work their paintings. To be able to see this many different techniques and approaches to painting will be a tremendous learning experience to anyone interested in how painters begin and address a painting. Featured Artists are: Rey Bustos, Vadim Zang, Alexey Steele, Sunny Apinchapong, Van Arno, Ray Roberts, Peggi Kroll, and others as well.

    #1130 - Figure Drawing with Emphasis on Action and Form
    Instructor: Paul Wee
    Tuesday, 7pm-10pm


    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!


    This class will focus on quick analysis of the figure using gestural, structural, and graphic methods. These methods will help you rapidly analyze the figure quickly and accurately, and will help you draw people anytime you choose, whether inside or outside the studio. Poses will range anywhere from 1 to 15 minutes. Basic exercises will be used to sharpen your observational skills, visualization, and drawing ability.

    #2140 - Figurative Watercolor Painting
    Instructor: Bill Perkins
    Monday, 7pm-10pm


    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This class is for those artists who enjoy the challenge of painting directly with watercolor. We will progress from sketching to more finished approaches in the medium. We will work from a model and begin with 2D design and mixing clean color, to form and non-form expressions through various watercolor techniques. Though we will progress in steps for clarity, this is not a step-by-step paint like me course. My goal is to help the individual artist become more proficient in the style they choose or would like to achieve.

    #2150A - Still Life Painting
    Instructor: Mark Cummings
    Tuesday, 11am-2pm


    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This still life course will introduce students to an understanding about composition, lighting, proper volume of form and color. Using sight-size and academic classical techniques, particular attention will be paid to properly perceiving depth, focus, pigments and mediums to produce an overall accurate yet appealing finished product.

    #1176 - Figure Drawing: An Analysis of Rhythm and Structure
    Instructor: Danny Galieote
    Sunday, 10am-1pm


    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This class is designed to give the student a dynamic and solid classical foundation in drawing the figure. We will be analyzing the rhythms and flows through the figure and be studying the anatomical landmarks and articulation of skeletal and muscular forms. We will also work on tonal relationships and line quality as the class progresses. Toward the end of the course, students will use a good quality, medium value paper with dark pencil and adding white highlights. In each class, we warm up with 2 to 5 min poses, progressing with 10 to 15 min and ending with 25 min poses. Samples/Demonstrations of drawings and/or paintings will be shown.

    #2390A - Alla Prima Figure Painting A
    Instructor: Tony Pro
    Thursday, 10am-1pm


    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This class will cover the principles of painting the figure wet into wet in one to two sittings. Getting the essence of the likeness and making a simple statement with paint are some of the hardest things to grasp in painting and I will cover methods I use in capturing the human spirit on canvas via demonstration and individual attention. We will also cover understanding light and its different temperatures and how it affects the model. If you are passionate about learning to paint figures from life with bravura brushwork and riveting color, this class is for you. Class level is for intermediate to advanced painters, but students MUST know how to draw the human figure at an intermediate to advanced level.

    #4009 - Animal Drawing
    Instructor: Kelvin Nguyen
    Sunday, 11am-3pm


    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    Emphasizes on animal drawing by using perceptual and technical skills. Emphasis are based on four ideas: 1) Gesture - action and attitude of the pose 2) Form - synthetic volumes and geometric shapes 3) Anatomy - what is it made out of, and 4) Techniques - exploration with various mediums and different ways of handling the materials

    #5001 - Teen Drawing/Painting from Costumed Model
    Instructor: Alex Douziech
    Monday, 6pm-8pm


    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!
    This class will be going over how to construct an object to look three-dimensional through the use of value, edges, and shading. We will be working in charcoal for the first five weeks. To make the transition from drawing to painting easier, we will be painting in black and white for the sixth and seventh week. We will then, be focusing on hue and saturation in oil paints. The class will end with a two week pose that will be painted in color. We will be working from sculpture casts and live models.

    Free Drawing Class, March 6th at LAAFA!

    Free Beginning Drawing Class March 6th Saturday, 11am-2pm at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art!

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This Free Instructed Class is for people who are new to LAAFA, and have never studied with us before (one free class per person). The free drawing class will encourage you to see with your eyes and to draw with your hand. Instruction will be given in simple shading, lighting, core shadows, and learning to draw through an object. This is an excellent opportunity for students with little to no formal drawing training at all. Learning to translate what you see to paper is an exercise that will challenge you in new ways, keeping your brain and your imagination piqued. Come give it a try!

    Bring your 18x24 pad of newsprint, some charcoal, a graphite pencil, a kneaded eraser, your right brain, and enjoy a class on the house. Our hope is that you realize how important art can be in your life, for without it we merely exist.

    More experienced artists can also benefit from one of these classes. Bring along your work, and during the class, our instructor will take some one-on-one time with you to give you a free portfolio review. Find out where you are with your skill level, and where you can go!

    3-Day Composition Workshop with Marshall Vandruff

    Marshall Vandruff 3-Day Composition Workshop
    Fri-Sun, Mar. 19-21, 2010, 12pm-7pm $375

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    COMPOSITION FOR ARTISTS begins with an explanation of how artists design their work to emotionally affect a viewer, and how these design choices are far more important to the impact of a masterpiece than skillful technique or correctness. Marshall gives a series of concentrated lectures extracted from a semester-length DRAWING FROM THE MASTERS course. He focuses on the compositions of great masters and the principles behind all successful artistic forms, principles that have been basic to composing art from the beginning. The sessions will be creatively invigorating, so come prepared to learn.

    Check out what is happening at the Norton Simon!

    Gaze: Portraiture after Ingres at the Norton Simon Museum! (Free admission for students with i.d) Free parking! 12pm-6pm.
    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    With close to 150 works culled from the Museum’s collections, Gaze: Portraiture after Ingres traces artistic engagements with the genre following Ingres’s influence in the early to mid-19th century. By displaying the portraits of Ingres’s contemporaries as well as those by Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, the exhibition examines why this type of painting, so seemingly laden with restrictions and expectations, appealed to some of the greatest avant-garde painters in the history of art. Continuing with the work of 20th-century masters such as Amedeo Modigliani, Oskar Kokoschka, Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol, the focus turns toward radical variations on portraiture, showing how and why, given the complete destruction of representation as early as the 1910s, these great masters returned to the genre over and again

    Enjoy!

    American Stories: Paintings of Everyday Life at LACMA!

    American Stories: Paintings of Everyday Life, 1765–1915 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. February 28th- May 23rd.

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    From the colonial period to the present, Americans have been inventing characters and plots, settings and situations to give meaning to our everyday lives. American Stories: Paintings of Everyday Life, 1765-1915 includes seventy-five paintings, from before the Revolution to the start of World War I, that tell these stories in scenes of family life and courting, work and leisure, comic mishaps and disasters. These daily experiences were all subject to the artist’s searching and revealing eye and many of the works on view are famous images known to almost every American. Major artists such as Thomas Eakins and Winslow Homer, John Singleton Copley and George Caleb Bingham, John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt, are included in this important survey, the first of its kind in over thirty years.

    There is still time to register for sessions!

    #3370 - Long Pose Figurative Sculpture with David Simon Tuesday, 12pm-6pm

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This class will focus on teaching the student to accurately represent the complexities of the human form. The use of proportional systems to funnel observation into an accurate sculptural representation of the figure will be introduced. This class will stress the synthesis of anatomical knowledge and observation. Students will learn how to correctly set up an armature and will be instructed in the proper use of modeling tools. There will be one pose for the duration of the course, and students may choose to work at either a 30” or 36” scale. Oil-based clay will be used.

    #3360 - Portrait Sculpture with David Simon Tuesday, 7pm-10pm

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This class will provide the student with a systematic approach to modeling a life-size portrait in clay. The use of calipers and triangulation will be emphasized in order to achieve an accurate portrait of the model. The use of photography and its application as reference for portraiture will be discussed.

    #1001 - Basic Drawing Fundamentals with Eric Pedersen Saturday, 1:30pm - 4:30pm

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This course introduces the fundamentals of drawing. How to hold a charcoal pencil, simple shapes, volumes, c-curves, s-curves, straights, edges, 4-value system, thumbnails, introductory composition, light sources, core shadows, reflective lights, are all covered in this course. This is an excellent course for students with little to no formal drawing training at all, or those wanting a refresher course in the basics.


    #2002 - Basic Painting Fundamentals with Eric Pedersen Saturday, 1:30pm-4:30pm

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    Whether you have never painted before or consider yourself a more experienced painter, this beginner course is designed to teach you a simple (or perhaps new) way of painting. From the most basic techniques (how to stand, how to mix paint etc.), to descriptions of materials, and to more advanced ideas of comparative measurements, and color harmony this class serves as a guide to basic principles of painting. Based on a method of direct observation the student will begin to understand how to use simple two dimensional shapes (triangles, squares, rectangles, etc.) to create an illusion of a three dimensional object.


    #1243 - Academic Portrait Drawing with Grigor Chilingarian Monday, 2pm-5pm

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    In this course we will be focusing on understanding the construction of the head. The class consists of five two-week poses. In each class we will apply what we have learned in the previous with additional information and goals. We will cover some anatomy of the features of the face, values, and forms.

    These classes haven't started yet, so there is still time to sign up:


    #2200 - Caricature Portrait Drawing and Painting with John Quinn Thursday, 7pm-10pm


    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    Portrait caricature can be achieved through the graphic exaggeration or distortion of the subject’s face. In this class we will attempt to go a bit deeper by using drawing to investigate what is unique in each person’s face. Students will learn to develop caricature through an understanding of forms of the human face, the importance of balancing the relationships of forms and the impact this has on the operation of opposing forces in the portrait. Students will learn to use exaggeration to demonstrate the importance of the forms following their function. The class will begin with drawing and progress to painting (week 6) in a medium of the student’s choice. Drawing exercises will range from 30 seconds to 20 minutes, Painting exercises will be 3 hours.

    #2390 - Alla Prima Figure Painting with Tony Pro, Thursday, 10am-1pm

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This class will cover the principles of painting the figure wet into wet in one to two sittings. Getting the essence of the likeness and making a simple statement with paint are some of the hardest things to grasp in painting and I will cover methods I use in capturing the human spirit on canvas via demonstration and individual attention. We will also cover understanding light and its different temperatures and how it affects the model. If you are passionate about learning to paint figures from life with bravura brushwork and riveting color, this class is for you. Class level is for intermediate to advanced painters, but students MUST know how to draw the human figure at an intermediate to advanced level.


    #2380 - Alla Prima Head/Figure Painting with Ignat Ignatov Friday, 10am-4pm

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This course will consist of painting demonstrations and lectures covering the important elements of painting such as value, color and edges, as well as composition and design. Each week the artists will paint from life a different model using the Alla Prima (wet into wet technique) and will receive individual instruction and critiques. The goal is to advance your skills in the direct painting method while applying the fundamentals to achieve a solid understanding of painting the human form in various light conditions and settings.

    New Exhibit at the Getty Center!

    Leonardo da Vinci and the Art of Sculpture: Inspiration and Invention March 23-June 20th at the Getty Center!

    Leonardo da Vinci (Italian, 1452–1519) was a painter, sculptor, architect, engineer (military, civil, and aeronautical), inventor, anatomist, cartographer, theoretician, and musician. His instinctive curiosity led him to numerous discoveries and achievements, some of which we are still only beginning to comprehend from the thousands of pages of his surviving handwritten notes and drawings.

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    This focused exhibition examines just one facet of his prodigious talents: his activity in the field of sculpture. Ambitious and detailed plans for enormous equestrian monuments, which were never realized, can only be understood through his drawings. These fragile records are made even more precious by the fact that no work of sculpture can be definitively attributed to Leonardo.

    For more info on this exhibition you can go to http://www.getty.edu/art/exhibitions...rdo/index.html

    Upcoming Seminar at LAAFA

    1-Day Meditation for the Artist Seminar Sat, May 15, 2010, 10am-5pm at LAAFA!
    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    The creative process is inherently contemplative and naturally benefits from meditation. Meditation enhances not only the creative process but also the viewing process in specific ways—it helps to synchronize mind and body, right and left hemispheres of the brain, and our intuitive and intellectual abilities. The mindfulness and awareness practices found in meditation lead us to rest in our senses so we can glimpse things as they are and enjoy genuine spontaneity and pure, unselfconscious, expression. They also dissolve creative blockages and reveal the source of creativity and inspiration. This one day seminar will teach meditation and offer specific contemplative exercises and activities such as non-objective brush and ink painting designed to further awaken your creative and viewing processes. Instructor: Steven Saitzyk. Adjunct Professor of Humanities and Design Sciences, Art Center College of Design. International Director of Shambhala Art, a nonprofit arts education program designed to integrate meditation into the creative process. See: www.shambhalaart.org. He has completed a Buddhist Seminary and has practiced and taught meditation internationally for more than thirty years.

    Live (Real-time) Online Classes Start September 8th!

    Are you ready to embrace a new paradigm in art empowerment and prosperity? Then its time to think differently. What do Michelangelo, Ralph Lauren, Geogia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Clint Eastwood, Auguste Rodin, Kelloggs, Sting, Frida Kahlo, Toyota, Picasso, Damien Hirst, Mark Ryden, Annie Leibovitz, Henry Moore, Greenpeace, Maxfield Parrish, Ray Bradbury, Joseph Beuys, and Elizabeth Taylor, all have in common?
    They are all brands.
    A brand is a purpose transformed into a product or service that connects to people, the planet, and beyond. The key word here is purpose, and specifically your purpose. This is where the heart of your essence resides, where your most potent art manifests, and the strength of your perseverance matures. The purpose inside you aligned with your personal vision is the foundation of your creative power. When your heart is joined with your art, a vital one of kind signature is formed. This brand is unique to you and your intimate product.
    Art is a product and selling art is a business. Embracing these two fundamental truths will bring clarity to your career if you desire financial independence.
    The Artist as Brand Workshop is a culmination of heart wisdom and entrepreneurial knowledge designed to empower independence and prosperity.
