Drawing Concepts and Techniques: Week 3
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

WEEK 3 : COMPOSITION AND LIGHT using the still life as subject.

This 8 week session will teach the student how to apply the drawing concepts and techniques of the great Masters, specifically from the mid 16th century (Renaissance) to the mid 17th century (Baroque) in Europe. Students will examine the basic elements of drawing including Line, Value, Form and Composition. Specific drawing materials will be used such as soft vine charcoal or willow charcoal and conte crayon on toned papers.

Our instructor, James Sulkowski is a classical artist in the tradition of the Masters. His adherence to Old Master concepts and techniques gives his work both timeless and luminous qualities.

His dramatic effects of light and use of deep, rich color have attracted private, corporate and public collectors worldwide including former President and Mrs. George H.W. Bush, the Saudi Arabian Royal Family and the Metropolitan Opera of New York. James studied at the famed Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Carnegie-Mellon University and most notably with master artist Frank Mason at the Art Students League of New York.

This class runs September 10-October 29. Please register below - you are signing up for all 8 sessions.

WEEK 6: THE FEATURES OF THE HEAD

This 8 week session will teach the student how to apply the drawing concepts and techniques of the great Masters, specifically from the mid 16th century (Renaissance) to the mid 17th century (Baroque) in Europe.

Drawing Concepts and Techniques: Week 7
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

WEEK 7: HOW TO ACHIEVE A PORTRAIT LIKENESS of a person or a pet.

This 8 week session will teach the student how to apply the drawing concepts and techniques of the great Masters, specifically from the mid 16th century (Renaissance) to the mid 17th century (Baroque) in Europe. Students will examine the basic elements of drawing including Line, Value, Form and Composition. Specific drawing materials will be used such as soft vine charcoal or willow charcoal and conte crayon on toned papers.

Our instructor, James Sulkowski is a classical artist in the tradition of the Masters. His adherence to Old Master concepts and techniques gives his work both timeless and luminous qualities.

His dramatic effects of light and use of deep, rich color have attracted private, corporate and public collectors worldwide including former President and Mrs. George H.W. Bush, the Saudi Arabian Royal Family and the Metropolitan Opera of New York. James studied at the famed Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Carnegie-Mellon University and most notably with master artist Frank Mason at the Art Students League of New York.

This class runs September 10-October 29. Please register below - you are signing up for all 8 sessions.
