Fridays AM, 9:30-12:30
Join Charles Miano and the Atelier Apprentices in these figure sketch sessions every Friday. There are only 5 spots open to the public.
Want to draw the figure well? This class will be a continuation of the morning session only with longer poses. 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. 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.
Fridays PM, 1:00-4:00

With Miano’s sculptural and mass-oriented approach to portraiture, you will realize your full potential of seeing. Miano’s method blends a perfect balance of an abstract, free approach with traditional studio technique. Unleash your power of personal expression while maintaining the beauty and naturalness of realism.
You will learn to build a portrait, step-by-step from start to finish. You will grasp the differences in capturing both a male and female likeness.
