This drawing and painting atelier style class with cover everything from the basics to the finer points of academic drawing and painting. Atelier-based training is a practice based on a thorough training of the eye and fundamentals stemming from the 1800s. These centuries-old practices have been making a full revival in recent year, and foundational atelier skills are now prevalent in countries all across the world, and especially in Fine Arts Academies throughout Europe. Atelier students hone their fine art skills through the practice of training the eye in observational drawing utilizing the "sight-size" method of drawing. 

This course will incorporate working from the Charles Bargue Drawing Plates as a foundation for training the eye before students will move onto drawing from plaster casts. The instructor will demonstrate how to create the "construct" as well as showing how to see and render the subject fully. 

Students with a firm foundation of knowledge in drawing fundamentals will move on to still life painting in this course.
