Figure Drawing Workshop
Featured Instructor:
Ed Hall MFA, University of Florida
Reddi-arts Art Supply Store, 1037 Hendricks Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida

May 22, May 29 & June 5, 2010 - (3) three hour sessions over three weeks (all Saturdays - a morning class and an afternoon class will be held, whichever is preferable to you - contact the store for available time slots, but hurry, classes are limited to 5 students and they will fill).

Class Structure:
Week One:
-Skeletal relationships to the figure, structure & proportion, mass & variation of line

Week Two:
-Space and spacial relationships (negative space, picture plane, composition)
Week Three:
-Value, contrast, shadows, final analysis - rethinking the figure, creative/experimental images
This workshop is primarily an investigation of figure drawing techniques and new ways of seeing. Along those lines we will be using a nude model. For centuries, artistis have utilized the unclothed model to better understand the human body and our physical relationship to the world around us. This requires a close examination of anatomical relationships, structural elements, form and movement - all difficult things to see with a clothed model. This workshop is for experienced artists.
Cost:$225.00 per student - (includes modeling fee, but not materials)
Contact: Jim Colney at Reddi-arts Phone: (904) 396-9167

Materials:Bring materials for a typical figure drawing session. At the minimum have: charcoal (vine and compressed), kneaded & hard erasers, and a new, large pad of Canson Biggie Sketch 18" x 24". You will be using a lot of paper.
