BACAA Noah Buchanan Winter Atelier 2019

January 22-March 26, 2019

Hours: 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Anouncing the New Buchanan Studio at the Bay Area Classical Artist Atelier.

Studying under figurative artist Noah Buchanan, students will study classical methods of drawing and painting the human figure from life. The Buchanan Studio at BACAA is unique for its instruction of painting techniques of 16th and 17th century Europe, and holds the works of Caravaggio, Rubens, Van Dyck, Velázquez, and Rembrandt as the apotheosis of great painting. The study of Artistic Anatomy was paramount to these artists, and plays an important role in the program.  

 The curriculum of training for The Buchanan Studio follows a classical ladder-based model of learning, which starts with foundational topics in drawing, and progresses towards painting the figure from life in full color. Students will receive instruction directly from the instructor as well as observation of the instructor’s ongoing demonstrations during class time. Beginning students will also receive guidance and coaching from an instructor’s assistant. 

 Beginning students devote themselves to the tradition of Cast Drawing (the practice of drawing from Greek, Roman, Italianate, and French Academic sculpture), while focusing on drawing techniques in graphite on white paper, as well as black charcoal and white chalk on toned paper. The practice of Cast Drawing allows students to build a solid foundation in the fundamental drawing skills of Shape, Value and Form. Cast drawing will take place in The Cast Room at BACAA, which offers several different casts for students to select from. The cast room at BACAA will maintain consistent/unchanging location, positioning and lighting of the casts to help nurture accuracy in student drawings. In addition to instructed sessions, beginning students will be offered optional Saturday afternoon access to the Cast Room to further develop drawings beyond class time. 

 Intermediate students who have demonstrated strength in Cast Drawing are invited to work in the Life Room with the studio model. Models’ poses will alternate every 10 weeks between The Nude, and Portraiture. Students who are new to the Life Room start by making drawings in graphite or Charcoal from the model. 

 Repeat intermediate students are invited to begin making oil paintings from the model in Grisaille (Black and White). This stage of learning helps the student form a bridge between drawing skills and Paint Handling (all of the logistics and proficiency in using oil paint).  

 Advanced students at the Buchanan Studio are invited to paint the figure from life with a full color palette. At this stage, students are afforded the rare opportunity to study 16th and 17th century painting techniques found in the works of Caravaggio, Rubens, Van Dyck, Velásquez, and Rembrandt. This practice of painting is known as Indirect Painting, and uses underpainting techniques such as Imprimatura, Velatura, Working Glazes, and Finishing Glazes. 

 With this classical skill building approach to drawing and painting the figure, the Buchanan Studio at BACAA hopes to give students the keys to progressing beyond the classroom to making challenging figurative work with content and narrative. 

All begginers to the Noah’s atelier at BACAA must begin in the cast studio.
