Graphic Novel Workshop Complete

Fundamentals of Graphic Novel Design & Pro Tips

with Industry Professional, James Biehl


We have officially finished our second summer workshop! James Biehl's Graphic Novel Design workshop for adults was great fun and very educational. In this workshop James instructed students through working from a live model, building character sheets, writing a script and executing up to 9 finished panels.

Thank you to all that joined us for this informative workshop. It was a true pleasure working with James and we look forward to working with him again in the future!

The Atelier Abroad

 The Atelier at Flowerfield is pleased to announce that our student Lewis Sawatzky has spent this month in Italy sipping espresso, sampling prosciutto, swirling Chianti, and doing a bit of drawing and painting.

Lewis is the second student in our foreign exchange program with the Charles Cecil Studios of Florence, Italy.  This one-month program is an intensive immersion in Classical Portrait Drawing and Painting Studies for eight hours a day. Lewis reports that his studies at the Atelier at Flowerfield prepared him well for this intensive study.


 Our Director Kevin McEvoy studied for several years at the The Charles Cecil Studios, a private atelier in Florence, Italy run by American painter and art historian Charles H. Cecil, who was trained by R. H. Ives Gammell. Offering training in classical techniques of drawing and oil painting, this Florentine art studio occupies the most historic Florentine atelier still in active use. The curriculum stems directly from the leading ateliers of nineteenth-century Paris. Fundamental to the teaching is the practice of drawing and painting from life. Another important practice is the sight-size technique whereby subject and image are depicted to scale as seen from a given distance.
