Townsend Atelier, Chattanooga TNPortrait Block-In & Color Study
Angela Cunningham has become one of our regular visiting instructors and we are thrilled that she will be joining us to teach a three day workshop this summer. Portrait sketches and color studies are a great way to develop your decisive decision making skills. Working from a model, this portrait workshop will take you through all of the steps, from learning how to draw the portrait and how to choose the right colors to accurately capture a likeness on canvas in oil paint.
The first half of the workshop will be focused on drawing from observation in graphite. Emphasis will be placed on practicing the visual tools of blocking-in. Students will develop their measuring and shape-seeing abilities. Then the second half of the workshop students will finish with a Color Study. Students will focus on using form and color to create a 3 dimensional likeness of the model. Angela will cover the understanding of hue, value and chroma. Organizing a palette as well as a mindset will enforce good controlled decisions and habits that will result in skills to accurately draw and paint what you see. Model fee is included in the cost of the workshop. There will be a one hour lunch break each day. Lunch is on your own.

Cloud Castle Art StudioStill Life & Portrait Painting
Sketches or color studies are a great way to develop your decision making skills. In both these classes, still life and portrait, we will use the first hour of class focusing on block-in. We will draw directly with paint on the canvas. Then we’ll spend the next four hours of class focusing on form and color to create a 3 dimensional likeness of the subject. Comparative measuring, angles, and alignments, along with hue, value and chroma will be discussed. Organizing a palette as well as a mindset will enforce good controlled decisions and habits that will result in skills to accurately draw and paint what you see.
Each day we will start with a new canvas (average size being 8” x 6”). Having a different subject each day will cultivate an understanding of how to use an open palette and making new color decisions based on the subject matter. It’s recommended for this class that students have some prior drawing skills.http://cloudcastleartstudio.com

PORTRAIT DRAWING AND STRUCTURE
In this class students draw the Portrait from observation, in graphite. Strong emphasis is placed on accuracy of Block-in and Form Modeling. It is in the understanding and practice of the visual tools of blocking-in that students develop their comparative-measuring and shape-seeing abilities. Focusing on block-ins is a traditional academic training method that allows one to fine-tune foundational skills for high accuracy.
