Upcoming Figure Drawing Workshop

Instructor: Carol Broman
2–day Workshop, 9:30AM – 4:30PM (Bring a lunch.)
Friday & Saturday, September 19 & 20
Price: $185 Member/$235 Non-Member (Includes a model fee.) Min/Max: 4/15
Working from a live model, this 2-day intensive covers the classical figure drawing approach that begins with a simple abstraction of the figure, refined through conceptual models of light, anatomy and a guiding aesthetic that finds beauty in truthful expression. Students will learn drawing techniques that improve accuracy as well as how to utilize value to create the illusion of three-dimensional space. Carol’s artwork will be displayed in the Alliance for the Arts September exhibit Modern Atelier: The Methods of Today’s Training.

The show is a collaboration with fellow alumni from the Grand Central AtelierTodd Casey (MA), Carla Crawford (NY), Angela Cunningham (NC) Danny Grant (TX) and Gregory Mortenson (NY).
