Ted Minoff Portrait Drawing & Painting Workshop
Start: Tuesday, August 6, 2013
Foster City , CA 94404
An intensive 6 day workshop will focus on foundational concepts in drawing and painting the portrait, including flat shape block- in, three dimensional, conceptualization of forms, structural anatomy, perspective, and the nature of light as it carves out volumes. Students will work on a single drawing and painting for the duration of the week, with a combination of individual critiques and instructor demonstrations. Students will push their drawings to the highest level of resolve, allotting time at the beginning of the workshop to construct a solid foundation and later giving form to the subtle distinctions that make the subject unique. Methods for toning paper and working on toned paper will also be explored.
