The Visual Art Institute's Figure Academy is an intensive 2 to 4 week figure workshop experience for Jr. High and High School age students. Students will study figure drawing in the morning and figure painting in the afternoon. Daily in-depth critiques help students engage in each others work and give students personal direction for successive studies. Students are exposed to the works of contemporary figurative artists and may have opportunities to hear from visiting local artists. Students will develop new skills and strong artwork for their portfolios. Each session runs from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm daily (with a half-hour break for lunch) for a total of 45 hours per week. Many students repeat Figure Academy yearly for several years. Younger students wishing to enroll in Figure Academy will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Contact VAI for more information at (801) 474-3796. Students will be required to pay an additional $45.00 materials fee.
