Costume Figure Drawing: From Normal to Superb

 One day workshop
Sunday afternoon
1pm - 4pm
February 26, 2017
Instructor: Bruce Wulff
Members: $35
Non Members: $50
This workshop will focus on how a work of art can change with the subject transforming over time. The male model (in costume) will assume three poses per hour. Poses will range form modest to theatrical. The wardrobe choices will range the same way: modest to theatrical. At the start the subject will be dressed in casual clothing. As the session progresses the model's attire will become more outrageous; such as a Superman or Elvis costume.
Aside from costume and gesture, focus will be given to perspective, light, and contrast. 16+

Chinese Brush Painting Workshop

One day Workshop

Instructor: Ping Yan
Members: $50

In this workshop, students will learn to use brush, ink, watercolors, and the authentic Chinese style. Students will paint traditional Chinese painting subjects, such as bamboo, birds, flowers, grapes and roosters (2017 is the year of the rooster). You will experience how the different shades of black ink mixed with colors can create the magic harmony of yin and yang, tranquility and wonder. Participants will enjoy the spontaneity, simplicity and creativity of the medium and its deep philosophical meaning.
