The Visual Art Institute's Figure Academy is an intensive figure workshop experience that will strengthen your ability to quickly draw and paint the figure. 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 successful 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 - 5:00 pm daily (with a half-hour break for lunch) for a total of 38 hours per week. Many students repeat the Figure Academy for several years. Please note that VAI will be providing some materials. An additional materials fee of $35.00 will be due.
