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.

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: $875 Summer 2019 (5 Days)
Cost: $2200 Combined Figure Drawing and Painting (15 Days)
