Cast Drawing

This class is designed for both absolute beginners and advanced art students. 

To those with little or no experience in art, the world of drawing and painting can be both exciting and intimidating. This class is specifically designed to welcome the new student and to educate them in the most important bedrock concepts. From learning how to select paper to understanding basic geometry, from discovering different types of charcoal to observing the flow of light over form, this course teaches students how representational, three dimensional drawing and painting is really a visual language of symbols and can be learned.  Past students of this course unanimously attest that the educational offerings of this course strip away intimidation and usher the novice into the arts.

 

 

The Atelier at Flowerfield starts all students on Cast drawing, as our practice continues the living history of drawing from antiquity. Utilizing casts from the prolific Caproni Collection (seen above) located in Boston, MA, our students spend a semester finely tuning their skill in sight size before moving into further areas fo study. This tradition stems back to the teachings of the old masters, and gives our students authentic grounds to build a fully immersed practice in genres and medium of their choosing.

This class is also recommended highly for advanced students who wish to strengthen their artistic foundations, learn a new way of seeing and drawing and ultimately master their craft. 

 

Materials are available for purchase through the Atelier.
