Life drawing is at the core of any serious program of fine arts. In these classes, students draw from the figure in pencil, charcoal, including an option of painting. Each drawing or painting is created over a period of sessions, developing the student’s eye for accurate gesture, proportions, and anatomy. With a single sustained pose, students will have the option of either taking one drawing/painting to a high degree of finish or completing several drawings from different positions around the model.

Gesture is more than quick drawings, it’s the life of a figure drawing. Breathe life into your figure drawings by building a deeper understanding of gesture. This class will mesh The Atelier and Studio Arts figure study methods. We’ll practice how to use it by first exploring what gesture is, and different ways to study it. Email cmitzuk@ gmail.com with questions and for supply list. For classes with Christine, please make checks to C.M. Art Productions, LLC. (Checks to Christine Mitzuk cannot be accepted.)

Gain a better understanding of how to portray clothed figures. Emphasis is placed on form, gesture, and underlying structure. We'll explore characteristics of fabric, fold types, and editing nature to serve the picture. Using the sight-size method, students will develop a minimum of 3 (winter) / 2 (summer) costumed figure studies. This class will spend 5 days per pose. Each pose will feature different costuming. Depending on experience, students are welcome to work in pencil, charcoal, or oil paint. Please also bring a plumbline. For classes with Christine, please make checks to C.M. Art Productions, LLC.

This course is a must for a basic understanding on how to create an interior or room setting with a figure. Composition, perspective focal point, center of interest and lighting will be addressed. Emphasis will be on the preliminary elements of composing an interior with a figure. Students will be guided through the process of creating thumbnail sketches, preliminary drawings, and color studies. The end goal is to understand how to think through the different elements of picture making for the fluid and successful completion of a composition that deals with a complex pictorial space. Materials needed include: black pen, pencil, charcoal, pointer, eraser, sketch pad, drawing board (12" x 16" or so), pencil or charcoal paper (12" x 16" or so), small canvases, primed boards, or watercolor paper (12" x 16" or so), and the material you need to paint (oil or watercolor).
