    In our NEW Drawing Boot Camp for Teens, students will be introduced to the fundamental concepts of drawing over the course of ten days. Mornings and afternoons will be divided into drawing from traditional classical cast sculpture and portrait drawing from the live model, respectively. 


    With cast drawing, under the guidance of our classically trained instructors, students will focus on the fundamental techniques of Grand Central Atelier’s method by studying comparative measuring, light and form using a step-by-step process. Each student will be working from different casts and progress at their own pace. 


    Students will develop an understanding of the human head and features by way of a long portrait pose and two three-hour portrait sketches working from three different live models. This dynamic structure will allow the students to experience both a measured and conventional manner through the eight-day pose and a more immediate approach during the two portrait sketch sessions. All portrait models are fully clothed.

    Principles introduced in the morning session will be built upon in the afternoon. Subjects include form modeling, line and mass drawing, proportions, and structural points of the human skull. 

    Instructors Liz Beard and Kevin Müller Cisneros will lead the group with demonstrations, lectures and individual critiques each day fostering an environment for discussion, discovery and practice.

    This workshop is ideal for beginners to intermediate skill level artists ages 13-18.
