    Dan Thompson Long-Pose Figure Drawing Workshop April 21-22!

    This course has been designed for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students of drawing in order to explore the human figure in long pose.
    The lessons will be reinforced by personal critiques as each participant develops a two day long pose drawing.
    The resulting drawing should thus provide a window into a how the student may create a more seamless approach to the classical figure.

    Ecorche/3D Anatomy w/ Rey Bustos - Week 1

    Rey Bustos is the wonderful kind of teacher who makes you feel like you are getting your money's worth out of his class - down to every last penny! Last Sunday, April 15th, Rey's Ecorche/ 3D Anatomy class at LAAFA started with students arriving 30 to 60 minutes BEFORE the start of class so that Rey could help us all get the main portion of our armature wire bent into shape.

    Rey expertly turned yard after yard of straight wire into the basic frame for a 16" replica of a human statuette or ecorche. In French, ecorche means "flayed" and refers to the fact that a finished ecorche sculpture looks like it has had the skin removed so you can see the muscles and bones.

    Our ecorches were only just beginning to take shape. All along the way, Rey guided us in measuring, bending, and wrapping our wire.

    After the wire supports for the arms and legs were bent into place, the next task was bending wire to support the clay ribcage we will be building in future classes. Rey guided students through the first four ribs and assigned the remaining eight as homework for students who couldn't get them done in class.

    Rey provided illustrations of the human ribcage from all angles to guide our wire wrapping and bending. Even though I thought I knew what a ribcage looked like, looking at the diagrams showed me the human ribcage in more detail that I imagined it could possibly contain.

    I realized that there is a big gap between knowing enough to merely identify a ribcage, and the intimate understanding that comes from a tactile experience of its form. Like an eager student aboard Ms. Frizzle's Magic School Bus, I can't wait to see what part of the body Rey will introduce us to next week!

    We finished class by securing our wire armatures to 12" wooden boards with double pointed tacks. Students with time to spare were able to start rolling their Super Sculpey into sheets to allow it to firm up a bit for next week's class.

    Week 1 of Ecorche/ 3D Anatomy was a lot of work, but the results were satisfying.

    We went from this: Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out! To this: Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out!

    I'll be posting every week as the Spring 2012 Ecorche/ 3D Anatomy class with Rey Bustos progresses, so stay tuned for weekly updates!

    5/19 Workshop @ LAAFA - Composition: Design for Dynamic Picture-Making

    Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out!

    Don't miss this upcoming one-day workshop with Nathan Fowkes at LAAFA!

    The skills of drawing and color are critically important and yet they don't find their full expression until they're teamed with a strong composition. If you're going to make a great picture you have to have a great composition. That will be the topic of study for this year's one-day intensive composition workshop with DreamWorks studio artist and Fine Arts instructor Nathan Fowkes. He will present the fundamentals of pictorial composition for the creation of compelling images for artists of all kinds including landscape, figurative and entertainment arts.

    The workshop will include:
    • Lectures on the fundamentals of effective picture making
    • Discussions on the creation of mood and environment
    • Principles for organizing complex scenes into pleasing arrangements
    • Strategies for solving compositional problems quickly and effectively
    • Studies of Composition in history and the modern day
    • Painting demonstration
    • Compositional exercises
    • Student painting time with instructor feedback

    Marshall Vandruff's 3-Day Animal Drawing Workshop @ LAAFA, May 25-27, 2012

    Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out!

    This crash-course will teach you the classic approach to draftsmanship and animal anatomy. If you've ever wondered how drawing masters can depict a horse leaping or a bear dancing without copying photographs, these three days of intense instruction will take you through the process step-by-step. You will learn 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. Marshall 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.
