Fee: $290                 
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 10 students

Recommended for intermediate and advanced students

In this workshop, students will draw the life-size figure on six-foot lengths of paper. Attention will be devoted to quality of line, observation of the rhythms of the standing figure, proportion, and modeling of sculptural forms through value. Topics of discussion and demonstration will include the initial blocking-in of the drawing, use of lines for comparison, attention to prominent anatomical landmarks, and shading and rendering of form through massing and linear hatching. While this practice is useful as preparation for large-scale painting, it also serves as a complete experience in and of itself. Poses range in length from one hour on Monday to a single pose on Tuesday, allowing students to build from a rapid gestural approach to a drawing of greater resolution. Each day will feature demonstrations by the instructor.

Jerry Weiss studied with Roberto Martinez in Florida, and with Harvey Dinnerstein, Robert Beverly Hale, Ted Seth Jacobs, Mary Beth McKenzie, and Jack Faragasso in New York.

His work is in the collections of the New Britain Museum of American Art; the State Capitol Building, CT; and the Harvard Club of New York City. His work and teaching methods have been featured in American Artist Workshop and American Artist Drawing, and he is Contributing Editor for The Artist’s Magazine.
