Drawing Workshop (July 21–23)
10am – 5pm
In this class, we will focus on portrait drawing. Since drawing is the time-honored foundation for every serious artist, we will help students sharpen their observation by studying the principles of planes, symmetry and dimension that are paramount in learning to draw a solid head. We will help each student appreciate how playful and rewarding good drawing can be in the tradition of the old masters.
- Standalone Registration Fee: $650
Painting Workshop (July 25–29)
10am – 5pm
We will continue with a five-day painting workshop where we will teach realist painting in the tradition of Rembrandt. Using dramatic lighting, students will learn how the language of painting works–and how simple it really can be–while experiencing the magic of north light in this ideal painting environment where BACAA boasts studios with 25′ high ceilings.
- Standalone Registration Fee: $1,650
