This workshop is an opportunity to draw using a broad range of papers and drawing materials, as well as a relative amount of freedom regarding subject interpretation. This will help students improve or polish their technique and compositional skills. Landscape drawing is an important part of academic education and the drawing of trees improves the discipline of attention. In this workshop, students will try to use all well-known materials such as: Conté pencil or crayon, pen-and-ink, regular pencil, and charcoal pencil, as well as mixed media, etc. Our images will be based on the magnificent landscape of Central Park, with its romantic, multi-scale views and architectural structures. For many centuries, landscape drawing was only a byproduct of the process of making a great painting. Lately, the drawings of the great masters have become much more significant for both museums and private owners. The first class will meet in the lobby of the League.

Leonid Gervits belongs to the European/Russian realist tradition of painting and drawing. In 1966, he graduated from the Odessa Art College. In 1973, he received an MFA from Repin Academy, where he later worked as a professor for sixteen years. Mr. Gervits moved to the United States in 1991, working as an instructor at the New York Academy from 1992 to 2000. He has been an instructor at the Art Students League since 1997. An artist of the realist tradition and of serious academic training, Mr. Gervits is able to work in a broad spectrum of genres. For more information, visit www.gervits.com
