Gundula Jacobs Figure Painting Workshop-France

Figure Painting Alla Prima
May 16-27, 2016 (10 days) in France
Small intimate private class offered in collaboration with the instructor and instructors approval
Workshop is Full
Email us to be put on the waiting list

Drawing and painting the life model! A daunting and extremely fascinating endeaver!
Let me take you on a journey of discovering all the aspects implied in a solid approach
in working from life.
The human body is very complex and requires a step by step method of finding its gesture, movement, and highly organized structures. In addition we need to study how light falls on the subject and reveals its beautiful harmonious entity of organic forms. Daunting but not impossible if you learn how to look at the model, thus overcoming many preconceived symbolic ideas.
All levels of experience are welcome. The emphasis of the course is on individual coaching
with occasional mini demos as the need arises.
All tuition fees are non refundable and non transferable.
Registration form/Terms and conditions must be signed prior to attendance
Cost: $1250 Regular Registration after

Ted will Demonstrate followed by students working from the model

Per Ted: “I give demos as needed, for as much time as needed. I don’t follow rigid schedules. My teaching style is organic-a response to what I feel the students most need at any given moment. 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.”

Advanced Artistic Intensive Workshop - Gross Anatomy August 2016

Dan Thompson

August 8-12, 2016  (5 days) 

Only a couple of Spots remaining

Workshop at BACAA and Stanford University

Email us if you’re interested to attend this workshop.

Only a few spots remaining

Offered at BACAA Studio & Stanford 
University Clinical Anatomy Division Lab 

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

5 Day Workshop

Hours: 10:45-6:00pm Monday Through Friday.

 

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.

Hours: 10:45-5:00pm 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. 

 

This three week course will introduce both the novice and experienced painter to the concept of controlled color based on the Munsell system. Week one, artist Graydon Parrish will teach each student how to mix every color within the gamut of oil paint.   The second week, he will introduce the concepts of color matching, shading series and color sequences.  This will enable the student to build successful palettes for any subject, real or imagined.   In week three, artist Tony Curanaj, who has taught with Graydon for years, will test and refine the student’s modeling skills and offer creative ways to use color in composition.
Students who have taken week one and two previously may want to start at week three.   Graydon Parrish will be attending the beginning of week three so that all will transition smoothly.

Third week Still Life taught by Tony Curanaj 

 

Tony Curanaj (b. 1973) was born and raised in New York. He is a dynamic painter who first studied at the School of Visual Arts and the National Academy of Design. In the late l990’s, Curanaj met Jacob Collins and became a member of the Water Street Atelier, an institution founded on the ideals of academic realism, where his studies and skills flourished. His subjects are classic and edgy, his paintings beautifully designed and masterfully executed with painstaking care. Curanaj currently teaches painting and drawing at the Grand Central Atelier in New York City as well as privately from his studio, also in New York

5 Day Still Life Painting Workshop
End of the summer workshop 

A few stations available

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop your work and learn great painting echiniques from a master artist.

Workshop Description:

Still Life Painting is an important genre of art and a proven tool for teaching artists of every skill level the disciplines needed to create successful, beautiful paintings.

This Workshop will concentrate on many of the fundamentals of good picture making, from the technical to the conceptual with still life as the subject matter. The class will have daily lectures and demonstrations focusing on different topics as well as individual critiques while the student paints his or her own still life set up. Some of the principles discussed through out the workshop will be composition, accuracy in drawing, color and color theory, understanding form and modeling, edge control, glazing/scumbling techniques, lighting, materials and good studio practice. The work and knowledge explored during the workshop can be translated to any genre of painting. Personality and vision are important elements in creating art. Having the foundation to master your craft and carry-out your creativity is essential.

Che Smith Figure Painting Workshops

Figure Painting Workshop

Dates:
September 17/18, 2016
( Saturday - Sunday )
10:45-5:00 p.m
In this two day figure painting intensive, Che Smith will cover an array of crucial principles for creating a successful figure painting in the realist style. Che approaches teaching from a refreshing perspective, addressing all of the things an aspiring artist needs to know, but may not be aware that they are lacking. Through extremely straightforward demonstration and explanation of her painting process, Che takes her students from start to finish of a figure painting from life. Subjects that will be addressed include (but are not limited to) color theory, light science, proportion and anatomy, color mixing, proper use of materials, composition, etc.
During this workshop, students will enjoy a highly descriptive demo with plenty of space to ask questions, as well as time to paint their own figure paintings from life, with hands on guidance from Che. 
Bio
Che Smith is an American painter based in Long Beach, California. She received her BFA from the Atlanta campus of the Savannah College of Art and Design and attended The Ryder School.
There is something very real and raw about the paintings of Che Smith. As a viewer it is readily apparent that she is not only able to capture the attributes of the people she paints but she is also able to express something more. There is something emanating from her work, a strong sense of the person’s essence or personality or aura or some combination thereof. It is this feeling that draws you in and makes you feel as though you’ve been given the opportunity to see something more personal. Her iconic style resonates throughout, making it easily recognizable while simultaneously presenting works that are wholly original.

Joshua LaRock Portrait Painting Workshp

Portrait Painting Workshop

October 24-28, 2016

Please email us if you’re interested to attend this workshop.

Hours: 10:45-5:00 p.m.

This course will be an overview of every step in creating a luminous in-direct portrait painting form life. 

LaRock will demonstrate the process each day while thoroughly discussing the observational, technical and conceptual ideas at hand. He will focus instruction throughout on creating the illusion of three-dimensional form as the foundational and distinctive attribute essential to good work. This method is distinct from the alla-prima, or wet-in-wet, method of oil painting and can therefore achieve certain effects by the use of semi-transparent layers of paint.  The workshop will begin by drawing and rendering the portrait in graphite, moving on to various methods of underpainting, building up the form, and finishing through glazing and scumbling.
