Drawing and Painting the Nude Figure
This workshop will introduce students to both drawing and painting exercises that Jeffrey
- Watts has developed and honed over the past 30 years at Watts Atelier of the Arts in Encinitas, CA. Jeff will walk the students through some of his most effective and tried methods for gesture drawing/painting, how to successfully paint from photos and Master Studies, as well as how to tackle the longer live model sessions. Emphasis will be placed on exploring these various modalities of study through structured exercises throughout the week. These exercises will help the students to start cultivating the confidence to further explore the most challenging of subjects on their own after returning home. Come prepared for Jeff’s intense one on one highly energetic and philosophic approach to one of his favorite subjects in both Paint and Charcoal. He prefers a direct style of teaching in which each student gets frequent workovers on their drawings and paintings as well as frequent class demonstrations.
