Students will be taught principles of drawing (inspired by the french academic methods) such as identifying lines, shapes, and forms. An introduction of the classical method of “block-in” technique, measurement and proportion will also be demonstrated to develop individual portraits. The principles of rhythm and rhyme will be touched upon to help students write poetry to express their emotions in words (in addition to the visual portrait). This class is a perfect platform to unleash the inherent creativity and imagination using qualitative writing and drawing techniques. The objective of this classical drawing and painting series is to offer palatable information and effective exercises to learn and apply traditional techniques/methods of the masters (past and present). Students will use a carefully designed step-by-step approach to draft and develop the skills required to create believable three-dimensional forms on two-dimensional surfaces. This French Academism (19th century) and Atelier Approach (15th to 17th century) series is broken down into several classes to give students the opportunity to learn new techniques and time for daily practice, artist demonstrations, and individual critique sessions. All courses are taught by award-winning realist painter and writer Kamlika Chandla. For questions, artist bio or more information email or visit All Materials for the workshop will be provided. Students are encouraged to carry their favorite art pencils/pens, a favorite poem, and a photograph for reference.
