Figure drawing from a live model is important to the development of all artists, at every skill level and in any media. Navigating the dynamic challenges of the human form in real time sharpens our abilities in a way few other studies provide.
Each session begins with a brief overview of classical drawing techniques such gesture, skeletal planes, and capturing shadow & light. Modeling will begin with a variety of short poses, and the last hour of each session will be dedicated to one specific pose. Please note that this is an uninstructed workshop, so each participant is welcome to explore any artistic style or media preferred.
No previous skills are required – come explore and enjoy.
All media welcome, with the exception of oil paints. Also consider bringing a portable floor easel or table easel. A suggested basic materials list will be provided to all registrants in advance of the first session.

Fingerpainting is a simple way of creating art without the use of brushes. Non-toxic acrylic paints are applied to a prepared canvas board, stretched canvas, or other surfaces using the fingers. Paints are smoothed, dabbed, and mixed on the surface. As part of the workshop, artist Phyllis Biondolillo demonstrates that any tool, even a brush, can be used to achieve a desired effect that can't be done by fingers alone. She will also show the workshop participants how fingernails can be employed to create lines and other tools, such as sticks can also be used to create more texture.
Taught by Phyllis Biondolillo.
