Justin Wood Still Life Workshop

Still Life Alla Prima
3 Day weekend Workshop

November 16, 17, 18, 2018
2 spots remaining
Workshop almost Full
 
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.

Figure Drawing: Using Line to Build Form

July 23-27, 2019

Tuesday-Saturday

Hours: 10:45 -5:00 p.m.
Lunch: 1:30-2:15 p.m.

BACAA Jon Demartin Registration form (PDF)

Description–
This workshop offers the artist a thorough study of both long and short pose drawing.  The long pose will give the student the opportunity to thoroughly study the objectives for each phase of the figure’s development, beginning with the ‘action’ and ending with the ‘modeling of form’. 
The first full two days will be devoted to short poses concentrating on specific objectives, which will be reviewed and demonstrated in class.  Newsprint will be the preferred paper for the short poses.  The remaining three days will be devoted to the long pose, which is designed to allow the student process and implement the principles learned during the short poses and to model form with values. 
The basis of the workshop is to build a solidly constructed three-dimensional figure using line as preparation for the modeling of form with light & shadow.  We will endeavor to build a foundation of knowledge so the artist can look for things as opposed to looking at things. The underlying goal is to give artists a deep understanding and appreciation of how line can create three-dimensional volumes in space. This will enhance and strengthen their work whether it is drawing, painting or sculpture.      
The instructor will present material in the form of demonstrations and historical references as a practical application to life drawing.

Tony Ryder Figure Drawing Master Workshop 

 

Figure Drawing in Pencil

Form, Light and Craft

Dates: July 29-August, 2019

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

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

This workshop was quite popular enroll to hold your spot.

BACAA Tony Ryder 2019 Registration Form (PDF) revised

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 2019 (5 Days)

Tony Ryder Figure Painting Workshop

Non-Symbolic Figure Paintingss

A very rare opportunity to study figure painting with Tony

Enrollment now open.
This workshop was quite popular please enroll to hold your spot.

August 5-August 16, 2019

Weekdays

Hours: 10:45-5:15 p.m 

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

BACAA Tony Ryder 2019 Registration Form (PDF)

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, in particular the human figure,  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 figure 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. 

Cost: $1350 Summer 2019 (10 Days)
Cost: $2100 for Combined Figure Drawing and Painting (15 Days)

This 5 day class will cover my methods and techniques of still life painting as well as floral painting. Day 1- 3 the students will be focusing on still life painting. During this part of the workshop we will be working in a more indirect, and step by step approach. We will start with a pencil drawing of the still life set up and then transfer the drawing to canvas. Students will then do a thin underpainting and then continue to work up the painting in full color and value. Day 4-5 will consist of adding flowers/ floral notes into the painting in a a more direct manner, which I use for painting florals. 

 

Day 1 - Demonstration of drawing and transfer method

 

Day 2-  Demonstration of underpainting and painting method

Day 3- Students will work independently

 

Day 4- Demonstration of floral painting method

 

Day 5- Students will finish their painting

 

 

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.
