The workshop will be divided between still life and figure drawing. You will be drawing an experienced musician and a highly crafted musical instrument.
By referencing the 1870 paintings of Edgar Degas, Musicians in the Orchestra and The Orchestra at the Opera, artists are invited to respond to the rhythm and movements in practice and the exquisite form of the musical instrument. The workshop will be divided between still life and figure drawing. Through demonstrations and instruction, the dynamic tension between human form and performing music will be conveyed.
You will be drawing an experienced musician and a highly crafted musical instrument. The class will include lessons in basic anatomy and perspective that will help dispel ambiguities in demonstrating foreshortened or complex forms. By the end of the course, you will produce a series of compelling drawings informed by balance, movement and music.
