Join Charles for ALL FOUR of his weekly studio classes!
Many great artists knew the value of assimilating principles of art through understanding how previous masters worked. The greatest way to mastery is to stand on the shoulders of those who came before.
With that in mind Southern Atelier’s Project: Master Copy is pushing artists forward by teaching a sure-fire method for replicating great paintings of art history. After choosing a suitable Master Painting, artists will learn the Atelier Method for creating a convincing Replica. This course will build an understanding of painting principles, processes and effects as handed down by example in the paintings of the ages. Starting with studies done with charcoal or a limited palette the student will explore and familiarize themselves with some works by influential masters and then will choose a painting to copy.
Strengthen your figure foundation! In this ongoing figure drawing class (open to all levels) working from a live model, we will stress short poses to give students a solid foundation in how to begin, plan and execute the ideal figure. The afternoon class will be a continuation of the morning session only with longer poses. Students will strengthen their ability to quickly capture the relationships of the pose, train the eye to simplify the information, learn to build volume with basic shapes, and hone troubling skill sets with a special focus each week (such as foreshortening, anatomical landmarks, how overlap creates volume, how to study, and much more).
Students will immerse themselves in important fundamentals of construction, anatomy, shapes, values, forms and edges in both drawing and painting. Intermittent full length demonstrations by Charles Miano will be a part of the course.
