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.
Drawing Demos (TBA)
5:30pm – 7:30pm
All drawing demonstrations will be done after class hours from 5:30 to 7:30pm in order to maximize painting and critique time.
BLFA workshops welcome students at all levels of experience, from beginning to advanced, as we tailor our teaching to each individual. All drawing and painting demonstrations will be done after class hours from 5:30 to 7:30pm in order to maximize painting and critique time; we design our workshops to help each artist achieve the next level in their work in an intensive focus on the basic principles necessary to becoming an artist.
Also, enjoy the luxury of having all heavy equipment provided, so you only need to bring your drawing and painting supplies–we’ll have easels and taborets for your convenience. Enjoy the small town feel of San Carlos, situated in an area rich with trendy restaurants and boutique shops as well as its proximity to San Francisco’s lively culture of museums, restaurants, galleries and shopping.
