The artistic understanding of the human form is a lifetime of study. Anatomy and structure (the study and analysis of the skeleton and muscular structure of the human figure) is learned through the use of live models, as well as reference to the skeleton and muscle structure. Students will understand the proportions of the human form through the study of the skeletal and muscle structure; this knowledge is then applies to the artist's interpretation of human proportions. Models perform dynamic gestural poses as well as extended poses. Instructors work intensely with students to develop drawing skills, engages them in the understanding of the human form and how to view it's physical characteristics. The study of the human form, still life and landscapes greatly enhance observational skills, drawing skills, and creative expression and is an essential component for visual artist. The fundamental techniques of painting are taught; practical color theory is applied, including paint handling, surface preparation, color mixing and self-expression. High school students work primarily in oils and are required to purchase their own oil paints, turpenoid, brushes; care and handling of these materials will be stressed. Critique, group discussion and individual attention occurs on a daily basis. Portfolio development will be emphasized for students in grades 11-12, with the understanding that drawing is the backbone of every successful college admission portfolio. In the afternoons, students will have the option of continuing their studies in drawing and painting or a choice of specialty disciplines: Ceramics, Fused Glass, or Character Design. This choice is made during the registration process and is for the entire 2 weeks. Pricing includes $50 material Fee and $25 registration fee, which are waived with the purchase of an annual membership.
