Bio

 

Steven Assael was born in New York City in 1957.  A graduate of Pratt Institute, he focuses his work on the human figure, individually and in groups.  Assael balances naturalism with a romanticism that permeates the figures and surroundings of his paintings and drawings.  His figures are modeled in glowing relief by gentle beams of warm and cool light. October, 2010 to January, 2011, Steven Assael’s work was the subject of a one-person exhibition at the Naples (FL) Museum of Art.  Assael’s paintings were included in the exhibition “New Old Masters”, curated by Donald Kuspit, at the National Museum in Gdansk, Poland in 2006.  A retrospective exhibition was held at the Frye Art Museum, Seattle (WA) in 1999.  Single-person exhibitions of works by Steven Assael have also been featured at the Cress Gallery of Art at the University of Tennessee, Lowe Gallery (Atlanta, GA) and Ann Nathan Gallery (Chicago, IL).  His work has been exhibited at The Arkansas Arts Center, The New York Academy of Art and The Arnot Art Museum (Elmira, NY), and is in the permanent collections of The Hunter Museum of Art (Chatanooga, TN), The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art & Design (Kansas City, MO), The Columbus Museum of Art (GA) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY). Steven Assael joined Forum Gallery in 1998.

Tony Ryder Portrait Drawing Master Workshop July 30-August 3, 2018

Portrait Drawing in Pencil

Form, Light and Craft

Dates: July 30-August 3, 2018

Hours: 10:45-5:15 p.m daily excepting weekend.

Lunch: 1:30 p.m -2:15 p.m.

One week course - an overview of basic principles and practices. 
Drawing from the live model. 
Two hour general demonstration each morning. 
Art of Drawing
Drawing is an art that integrates and coordinates various ways of seeing. At the same time, it is something we do with pencil and paper. We make the mind into an instrument of attention, and then into several more, and then we teach them to play together while we lead the pencil about on the paper in a balletic movement. 
Life Drawing
Drawing from life is patterned after the shapes of life, and the movement of life is in it. It is a way and expression of life. This life grows through practice in a supportive environment. We learn to draw by making many drawings, being in the studio, hearing the teaching, and focusing attention. 
Point, Line and Tone
We use the pencil differently at different times in the process. Long light strokes and careful curves, hatching and cross hatching. It follows the way that the mind is thinking at that stage of the drawing. The drawing progresses through various stages, and the pencil adapts to the thought process in each one.
 
Process
In this approach, we begin with the block-in, the structure of the drawing, judging proportion with point to point vision. We infuse the block-in with movement and fullness, and work with it, and gradually refine it and develop it into a convex contour. In this way we make it into a containing shape into which we bring light and shadow. These we elaborate according to our sense of form and understanding of light. This process is demonstrated in class, and the principles explained and illustrated repeatedly. 
Study and Practice
The rest of the class is given over to study and practice with personal instruction. 
A highly intensive and enjoyable learning experience. A good workout! Recommended to all levels. 

Cost: $850 Summer 2018

Tony Ryder Portrait Painting Workshop

Non-Symbolic Portrait Painting

August 6-August 17, 2018

Weekdays

Hours: 10:45-5:15 p.m 

Lunch: 1:30 p.m -2:15 p.m.

Non-symbolic painting represents what we see with our eyes, not substituting ideograms, like present day ‘emojis’. In learning to paint non-symbolically we develop an understanding of the building blocks of visual experience: the form of things, and the light by means of which we see this form. We become aware of the fact that in all of nature in general, and in the human figure and portrait in particular, there is a certain wonderfully beautiful kind of formal structure about which there has for centuries been a special knowledge and language.

We who practice the art of painting from life study this knowledge. 

Form painting is a way of painting that is one with the understanding of form and light. It is a methodical way of processing and representing our perception of the appearance of the model. Through the agency of light, a great quantity of information shines from the model. In form painting we learn how to format and sequentialize that information, and bring it into our painting one brushstroke at a time.  

 

In this portrait painting workshop Tony demonstrates form painting on a toned ground, beginning with a medium-value ochre brush drawing. He illustrates the block-in and refinement of the drawing. He shows and explains how he sees, mixes and applies colors. He explains and demonstrates the logic of the method of painting from dark to light. He describes in great detail the forms of the head, their fluid shapes, convex surfaces and how they fit together. He shows how he builds the painting from the drawing up, again and again with each form, unified by the perception of the organization of the form of the model and the coherent action of the light. 

10-day (54 hr.) class

5-morning (15 hr.) demonstration

Cost: $1380 Summer 2018 (10 Days)

Carlo Russo Floral Painting Workshop

4 Day Floral Painting Workshop 


October 5, 6, 7, 8, 2018


Hours: 10:45-5:00 p.m 

 Lunch 1:30-2:15 p.m. 


In this 4-day class will focus on painting the floral still life in oils. Florals can be a daunting subject and we will try to make sense of the beautiful forms which have fascinated and frustrated artists for centuries. Since flowers and plants tend to move from day to day and even hour to hour the students will draw and paint directly on the canvas with the brush only. The focus will be on capturing the essentials of the still life and finishing areas wet in to wet. I will give frequent demonstrations and critique as we explore the unique nature of flowers and plants in paint.

Carlo graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2004 where he focused his studies in the  methods and practices of traditional realism.  Since his graduation, he has been a full-time working artist, winning several awards including a fellowship at the Hudson River school for Landscape in 2008, and winning 3rd place in Figurative Painting and a purchase prize at the 2012 Art Renewal Center Salon. While known primarily for his mastery in still life painting, he is accomplished in figurative and landscape painting as well. Carlo works in the natural northern light that fills his studio. He is intent on creating beautiful works which capture the myriad textures, colors and forms we find all around us. He regularly exhibits his work in galleries across the United States.

Justin Wood Still Life Workshop

Still Life Alla Prima
3 Day weekend Workshop-New

November 16, 17, 18, 2018
 
Hours: 10:45-5:00 p.m. 
Lunch: 1:30-2:15 p.m 

 
Alla Prima painting is a working method where paint is applied wet into wet. This relatively rapid painting procedure yields a typically bold and energized expression as the work or part being worked on must be finished in the first attempt. With time and practice, the skill set gained from this practical and economical process will greatly benefit the artist no matter their subject or style.

In this workshop, artists will create a new painting each day. Participants should bring in their own objects to paint. Canvas sizes should be between 8x10 and 11x14. Once our compositions are designed, we will draw directly on the painting surface with charcoal or paint. After the drawing is completed, a quick grisaille or color lay-in will establish the general color and/or value structure of the composition. While this initial layer is still wet, a final color layer will be applied. The entire process, from the block-in, paint application, and light/color will be discussed and demonstrated in detail.
Bio:
A contemporary classical painter, Justin Wood (b. 1982) studied illustration at the College of Visual Arts at Syracuse University and classical technique with Jacob Collins at Grand Central Atelier in New York City. Drawing inspiration from the great works of Caravaggio and Rembrandt, Wood’s oil paintings demonstrate his rigorous draftsmanship, but it is his use of chiaroscuro and tactility that give way to a distinct and alluring beauty in his work.
 
Equally adept at the art of portraiture and figure painting, Wood has turned his attention to still life painting of which he excels: “I’m trying to create scenes with well-crafted objects, says Wood, that are pleasant to look at and create a decorative ensemble.” Wood’s invented world of light, artifact and nature resonate a calm stability, an atmosphere of meditative silence. With motifs similar to those used by seventeenth century, Dutch still life painters, Wood’s tabletop arrangements present the viewer with an ordered world where man and nature dwell in harmony. Receptacles of pewter, copper and silver coexists with figs, plums, peeling lemons and other edibles, each work owing its cohesion to the manor in which light is bathed around each object.
 
Justin Wood is currently represented by galleries in New York and Massachusetts. His work has been featured in a number of art fairs and exhibitions throughout the United States. Wood teaches cast drawing and painting at the Grand Central Atelier and currently lives and maintains his professional studio in New York.
