DESCRIPTION

David Kassan
A Traditional Approach to iPad Painting from Life
October 24–28
Monday–Friday, 1:30 pm–7:00 pm
Fee: $750
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 12 students

This workshop is designed to help students understand how the iPad can be used as a tool to augment their physical painting practice by having a full-color sketchbook on hand in almost any environment.  Software and hardware discussions will cover the different aspects of each painting/drawing application, and the pros and cons of each different stylus that is available. We will be using the iPad to paint the model from life, using a traditional approach. Emphasis will be on understanding the structure of the model, as well as on the artist's analysis and interpretation of the model. There will be demonstrations to fully illustrate the instructor’s process from start to finish. There will be much one-on-one coaching to diagnose any stumbling blocks that students may have, and to develop the clarity of vision that is essential for accurate observation. Most importantly, students will learn to transcend the iPad so that their full concentration is placed on creating a coherent whole image, expressing the model’s presence and emotion.
