MAY Art Marathon! (no instruction)
April showers...brings a MAY MARATHON! Sign up for two days of making art from live models with a group of other artists in a focused and enthusiastic atmosphere. This art marathon offers four poses in all, each for three hours. There will be 20 minutes of gestures before each long pose to energize and inspire your work. You can paint, draw, sculpt, create collage—your choice! I’ll be there drawing and timing the model. No Instruction.

Draw in sketchbooks from fascinating animals while exploring issues of color, texture, space, line, form, and composition. It’s a joy to be outside of the traditional studio investigating drawing concepts inspired by “models” at the zoo. A selection of drawing media will be used including color, both wet and dry media. Each lesson begins with a lecture in the zoo café before heading out to draw from a variety of animals according to the topic discussed. All classes are held at Woodland Park Zoo. All levels are welcomed. Zoo entrance fee is not included.

Amedeo Modigliani (1884–1920) painted his most notable portraits and nudes in Paris, characterized by elongated bodies, textured surfaces, stylized shapes and pure color. His influences ranged from the classical nude genre, primitive art, and modern artists of his time. This workshop explores the technique, composition and influences of Modigliani. You will produce one painting made from the life model and several painting sketches. Oil or Acrylic. Some painting experience recommended.
