Figure Drawing Workshop
Featured Instructor:
Ed Hall
MFA, University of Florida
Reddi-arts Art Supply Store, 1037 Hendricks Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida
January 15, 22 & 29, 2011 - (3) three hour sessions over three weeks (all Saturdays - 10:00am to 1:00pm - contact the store for available slots, but hurry, the class is limited to 5 or 6 students and it 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, artists 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.

Hi Ed, I signed up a friend for this workshop, but, as you know, it has been postponed. I hope you can reschedule soon. Are the Tuesday sketch sessions open for others to join in?

Thank you,
