Grand Central Atelier

Study - Spring Classes: Weekends

Evening and Weekend Studios are for serious artists of drawing, painting, and sculpture who share the Grand Central Atelier’s ideals, and who aspire to high artistic fluency.

As in the Grand Central Atelier, the studio program is progressive. Evening and weekend participants are encouraged to begin in the cast hall. For those who are passionate and ambitious, this is an exciting introduction to the study of nature through the lens of classical realism. Cast drawing artists will rapidly learn a tremendous number of complex and interrelated ideas. Only after this are they encouraged to explore the figure, portrait, and still life, all of which expand on those early foundations.

Additionally, evening and weekend studios provide portfolio opportunities for artists applying to the Grand Central Atelier, which views careful drawings as a sign of focused dedication.

    In this class you will learn to capture the likeness of the model. We begin with a "Block-in" and arrive at a highly resolved portrait sculpture. You will closely study the facial features; their surface form and their anatomical structure. Learn to see three dimensionality in the hair and have fun designing the crop of your portrait bust. The Antique, Renassance, and 19th Century references will inform our studies. 

    No prior experience necessary. Come ready to study from nature! 
    Armatures and Clay will be provided.
