Final 2012 Melbourne Lecture & Workshop announced
on Monday, March 19th, 2012 at 12:31 am Permalink
I would like to invite you to join me for my last 2012 Melbourne workshop to be held this coming weekend, March 23, 24 & 25.
We will begin the weekend with a Friday evening lecture on the history of drawing and the exploration of various techniques that artists have adopted over the centuries. Special emphasis will be placed on the sight-size drawing method and the Charles Bargue course, the “Cours De Dessin”.
On Saturday morning we will put all that theory into action and take on the challenge of cast drawing. Each student will have their own cast to work from, and the drawings will be done in charcoal.
Sunday is model time and we have six hours to draw the figure with the same pose throughout. Each student will have their own designated spots and the drawings will be done in pencil on Stonehenge paper.
Cast Drawing: New York
The cast is typically set-up on the left and the sight – size charcoal drawing is done on the right.
Figure Drawing: Rome
The tuition fee is $485 and includes all costs including studio equipment (casts, stands, background fabric and easels) along with required drawing materials ( high quality paper, pencils, fusain charcoal, kneaded erasers, plumb lines and mirrors). Model fees are also included.

I do hope you can join us! Please reserve your spot as soon as possible. We have space for six students and enrollment is based on first come first served!

If you cannot participate in all three days of the workshop but would like to join us just for the Friday night lecture, the Friday night lecture fee is $25 and refreshments (including vino!) will be served.
