    Orphan Works: Danger To All Artists!!

    The bill is referred to loosely as the "Orphan Works" bill. The
    essence of it is that if it passes, it will become very difficult for
    all artists to protect their artwork from infringement or theft.
    Artists would be required to pay money to private registry
    organizations to register every single piece of art they create in
    order to receive ANY legal protection for their art. Because if you
    don't register your work, according to the new bill, it's not
    valuable and therefore you are "orphaning" or releasing your legal
    rights to your art

    This would include any drawing, sketch, painting, photograph,
    sculpture, video recording, etc. that you ever create, or have
    created since 1974.
    For an article that summarizes the situation:

    http://mag.awn.com/index.php?ltype=p...no=3605&page=1

    For an audio interview that elaborates on the problem follow this link:

    http://www.SellYourTvConceptNow.com/...nformation.mp3


    At the end of the first article you will find links to the people who
    are fighting this: the Illustrators Partnership. They have been
    organizing artist groups around the world to oppose the bill.

    http://www.illustratorspartnership.o...s/article.php?
    searchterm=00185

    This issue will need the support of artists willing to write and fax
    and email their congressmen in the next few months. Particularly for
    us artists in California, because apparently California congressmen
    play a key role on the various boards that would oversee the bill.

    5 Day Figure Drawing Workshop with Jon DeMartin July 9th-13th!

    Jon DeMartin will be teaching a 5-day Figure Drawing Workshop July 9th-July 13th at Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art! The workshop starts at 10am-5pm.The purpose of this course is to develop the student’s ability to correctly perceive the models main movements and to verify the models proportional relationships. In addition, the student will learn to correctly identify light from shadow and effectively create relief through tonal progressions in the light. The underlying goal is to give the students a good foundation so they can make the transition from drawing to painting the figure more easily and effectively. Materials and methods will be studied that pertain to certain styles of drawing. Individual needs of each student are addressed and there will be lectures and demonstrations with and without the model.

    If you would like to take the workshop call us at 818.708.9232!

    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!
