    Name: Short & Long Pose Life Drawing with Jon deMartin
    Date: July 15, 2019 - July 19, 2019
    Event Description:
    This workshop offers the artist a thorough study of both long and short pose drawing. The long pose will give the student the opportunity to thoroughly study the objectives for each phase of the figure’s development, beginning with the ‘action’ and ending with the ‘modeling of form’. The first full two days will be devoted to short poses concentrating on specific objectives, which will be reviewed and demonstrated in class. Newsprint will be the preferred paper for the short poses. The remaining three days will be devoted to the long pose, which is designed to allow the student to process and implement the principles learned during the short poses and to model form with values. The basis of the workshop is to build a solidly constructed three-dimensional figure using line as preparation for the modeling of form with light & shadow. We will endeavor to build a foundation of knowledge so the artist can look for things as opposed to looking at things. The underlying goal is to give artists a deep understanding and appreciation of how line can create three-dimensional volumes in space. This will enhance and strengthen their work whether it is drawing, painting or sculpture. The instructor will present material in the form of demonstrations and historical references as a practical application to life drawing.
