Figure Drawing and Painting

December 5-9
Monday Through Friday
Hours: 10:30-4:30 p.m.
Lunch: 1:30-2:15 p.m.

Two spots remaining

The goal of this workshop is to lay a foundation for learning how to draw or paint the human figure from life and to present a clear methodology for how to move a drawing or painting forward from beginning through to finish. In five days, students will create either a drawing or a painting of the figure following a logical sequence- each phase will have a clear objective which, when accomplished, will lead to the next phase.
Students who wish to draw can work on white or toned paper with pencil, chalk, or charcoal. Students who wish to paint can work in monochrome or color. We will aim to produce work which is correctly proportioned, well- constructed, and which shows a secure understanding of light and its relationship to form and value.


In the mornings, the instructor will review the materials and objectives for the day and will give demonstrations to illustrate the principles we are studying. In the afternoons, the students will work on their projects. The instructor will be available for individual critiques.

 

Day 1- AM: Review materials and procedure for drawing the head and the figure. Emphasis will be on gesture, proportion, and linear three- dimensional construction.
Day 2- AM: Demo of open grisaille. This method is applicable for
working on either white or toned paper using pencil, chalk, or charcoal, or for working with paint on canvas. We will review the value scale and study the behavior of light and its relationship to form.
(Those who paint can either draw directly on the canvas, or draw on paper and then transfer.)
Day 3-AM: Demo of closed grisaille. This method can be a self-contained study or a preparation for a subsequent color painting (indirect painting).
Day 4-AM: Introduction to color for flesh painting, the color wheel, and palette preparation. 1st painting (ebauche). Day 5-AM: The 1st painting. A discussion of the qualities of alla-prima painting and indirect painting.
Final critiques.

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.

Monday Through Friday
Jan 30 - Feb 10, 2017
Hours: 10:45-5:00pm
Lunch 1:30-2:15pm 

Very few spots remaining

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This ten day workshop will focus on painting the nude figure from life.   Starting with limited palette, and working up to a more extended color palette, students will be developing their painting by focusing on strong draftsmanship, building form with correct values, and honing their skills with naturalistic color application. Drawing, color sketching, anatomical principles, and composition will be discussed as we progress with our figure painting. Students will have the full ten days to complete one painting.   One day will be dedicated to the structure of the hands, with methods that will allow students to more fully understand rendering one of the most difficult components of the human figure.   Kamille will be painting alongside the students and giving individual critiques daily.

Advanced Artistic Intensive Workshop - Gross Anatomy 

Dan Thompson Gross Anatomy Workshop

March 6 - 10, 2017
Monday Through Friday 
Hours: 10:45-6:00 p.m.

Workshop almost full

Workshop at BACAA and Stanford University

Offered at BACAA Studio & Stanford University Clinical Anatomy Division Lab 

Successfully Offered in December 2013, January 2014, August 2014 & 2015.

This course is being offered in accordance with an ongoing relationship between BACAA & Stanford University, specifically, Stanford’s Laboratory of Clinical Anatomy.  The purpose is to offer motivated students of figurative art an intensive program of long posed life drawing, coupled with studies from dissected human cadavers and partial specimens. The course will start with a slide discussion on the trunk (part 1) and then a drawing demonstration and an overview of landmarks of the human figure (intended to cover life drawing fundamentals and initiate a discourse on the use of anatomy in drawing). The afternoon of the first session will be held (as all afternoons will be) at Stanford University. The focus of the afternoon will be on the anatomical appearance of landmarks in prosections (dissected and preserved human parts) as well as planes of motion in the body and how to draw from the cadaver. The second session will begin with a slide discussion on the trunk (part 2) and be followed by life drawing and an afternoon at Stanford’s laboratory, involving interpretations of the torso and human shoulder structure.  The third session will deal with the anatomical arm, beginning with a slide talk and continuing with life drawing and laboratory study.  Session four will introduce the region of the human forearm as a form of aesthetic interest and include a slide discussion, life drawing and laboratory work.  The final session will bring the human hand into focus, first through slides, then figure drawing and, finally, by utilizing the cadaver.  Learning outcomes should include a profound appreciation of the intricacies and beauty of the upper figure.

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

Patty taught at BACAA in 2011
We are honored to welcome her back.
  

In this 5 full-day painting workshop you will learn how master painter Patricia Watwood uses great design and color to create exciting and memorable paintings.  Patricia will teach her process of making a portrait in three steps, first planning the design and making a drawing in charcoal.  Next, she will show you how to use a limited palette to quickly map out the light and form.  The final stage will teach you how to work with her full color palette to get beautiful and naturalistic skin tones, and organize the colors of your picture for a successful and beautiful result.  During the workshop, she will also give a lecture on design concepts, share her creative process, and discuss staying inspired, to give you tools for strong compositions and creative images.  The class will create thumbnail studies and work together on making good design choices that will help strengthen your art making.  There will be daily demonstrations and lectures, and 4-5 hours of painting time from the model each day, with individual critiques and instruction.

Jacqueline Kamin Painterly Painting Workshop

Jacqueline Kamin

NEW - Floral Painting Workshop-New~

April 27, 28, 29, 30, 2017

4 Day Workshop

Hours: 10:45 am - 5:00pm 

These workshops are offered at BACAA

Learn the Basics of the Floral Still Life 

Students will explore the basics of setting up a poetic still life, with an emphasis on the fleeting beauty of flowers. This will encourage a bold, direct application of paint to capture essential beauty. We will discuss the importance of finding an abstract, visual idea in the set up that is all-important for conveying this beauty to the viewer.  Students will experiment with the lush quality of oil paint to find the inherent beauty of thick, opaque lights contrasting with thin, transparent darks. This exploration will help students find their own unique voice. Flowers will be provided, but students are encouraged to bring any still life objects or fruit they would like to paint as well. 

Jacqueline Kamin’s illustrious career was nurtured at the Corcoran Museum School and later at the Sculpture Studio and the Art Students League in New York. Her poetic and painterly style developed early on and soon became recognized by many prestigious art organizations through awards and juried shows at the Bowers Museum, the Salmagundi Club, the California Art Club and Oil Painters of America. Her work was included in several internationally-known art expositions held in Hong Kong and New York City as well as the National Museum for Women Artists in her home town, Washington, D.C. She is past president of American Women Artists and brought new energy to the organization with her special vision for women in the art world today. Kamin has been featured in Southwest Art and Art of the West and has her work in such collections as U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, Entrepreneur Magazine, Manocherian Brothers of New York, and Big Horn Westinghouse Corporation. As a way of sharing her artistic passion, she continues to teach nationally for Bright Light Fine Art Workshops. Currently her work can be seen at the Saks Gallery in Denver, Co. and the Lilypad Gallery in Rhode Island and Minn. She will teach again this coming year at BAY Area Classcial Artist Atelier.

There will be lots of demos, but not on a fixed schedule. Very often when I am critiquing a student’s work I see something that everyone should hear, so I ask them to gather round. After a demo or explanation, I often pick a student and ask them to explain the principle just mentioned.”

4 Day Workshop

Hours: 10:45 am - 5:00pm 

These workshops are offered at BACAA

In this class, we will discover how the simplification of the complex forms in a portrait can produce not only a strong result, but also a beautiful painting. By understanding value, color, edges and brushstrokes, students will learn to see in the language of painting. There will be a new model each day in order to keep work fresh and direct and students will be encouraged to get a feeling of the model’s spirit in their work so that it comes alive! Students will work.

Jacqueline Kamin’s illustrious career was nurtured at the Corcoran Museum School and later at the Sculpture Studio and the Art Students League in New York.

Super Fantastic Three Week Munsell Color Course. 

August 7-25, 2017 
15 Day New~

August 7-18, 2017
10 Days 


Choose all 3 weeks or two sessions.

(Enrollment now open, see registration info below) 

Hours: 10:45-5:00 p.m Monday Through Friday.

Color Theory and Practice.

For most of the history of art, color was thought of as unknowable, the province of only a gifted few.   While great colorists might be born, an artist can gain an intimate knowledge of color space by understanding the three attributes of color…hue, value and chroma…and practice mixing each.

A painter in his own right, Albert Munsell (1858-1918) used the terms hue, value and chroma in his numerical system of color naming.  A numerical system, he thought, was more precise than the traditional names of color like ochre, crimson and ultramarine.  

For example, he would describe a certain yellow not as yellow ochre, but as 10YR 5/6 where 10YR is the hue, 5 is the value and 6 is the chroma. 

Graydon Parrish’s Super Fantastic Three Week Munsell Color Course.

This course will teach both novice and experienced painters confused about color how to precisely mix every color available in the gamut of oil paint and how to apply them to every day painting situations.   By using the color notation system created by Albert Munsell, artist and educator, students will understand the nuances of color, how color has the separate properties of hue, value and chroma, and why artists past and present choose specific pigment for painting problems.    We will explore palette organization, study light , halftone and shadow and learn the important skill of bracketing.    Add to this an extraordinary and racy day named  “Fleshy Friday” when students get to mix the flesh tones of just about everyone, anywhere. This truly is a color class full of eye taxing scrutiny and exhilarating discovery.

Learn the Basics of Drawing and Painting the Figure 

Each morning we will draw the figure by learning the important anatomical landmarks to locate. Using a skeleton for reference, students will learn to decipher bone structure by understanding vital landmarks to note on the human figure. This knowledge will create a confidence that allows freedom of line when capturing gesture—the life of a drawing. 

 

Jacqueline Kamin’s illustrious career was nurtured at the Corcoran Museum School and later at the Sculpture Studio and the Art Students League in New York. Her poetic and painterly style developed early on and soon became recognized by many prestigious art organizations through awards and juried shows at the Bowers Museum, the Salmagundi Club, the California Art Club and Oil Painters of America. Her work was included in several internationally-known art expositions held in Hong Kong and New York City as well as the National Museum for Women Artists in her home town, Washington, D.C. She is past president of American Women Artists and brought new energy to the organization with her special vision for women in the art world today. Kamin has been featured in Southwest Art and Art of the West and has her work in such collections as U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, Entrepreneur Magazine, Manocherian Brothers of New York, and Big Horn Westinghouse Corporation. As a way of sharing her artistic passion, she continues to teach nationally for Bright Light Fine Art Workshops. Currently her work can be seen at the Saks Gallery in Denver, Co. and the Lilypad Gallery in Rhode Island and Minn. She will teach again this coming year at BAY Area Classcial Artist Atelier.

Carlo Russo Floral Painting Workshop

4 Day Floral Painting Worskhop 

Ocotober 5, 6, 7, 8, 2017
Hours: 10:45-5:00 p.m 

Lunch 1:30-2:15pm  

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.
