INSTRUCTORS: Jessica Henry Gray;
Daniel Hill Riedel
Drawing from nature is an inexhaustible discipline—critical for each student at every stage of the artistic journey. Year 2 of RAFA is designed to instruct the student to truly see, understand and use the finer points of drawing. The foundation was laid in the Year 1. In Year 2, students are taught the classical methods of drawing entirely from life. Jessica Henry is the instructor for the first 4 lessons.
Lessons 1 & 2 will focus on time spent outdoors with a simple paper, pencil and time to immerse yourself in the in-depth study of nature and all its intricacies.
Lessons 3 & 4 focus on drawing the plaster cast; blocking in the form, mapping out the value patterns, and dealing with subtleties of transitions.
Daniel Hill Riedel teaches Lesson 5, as he demonstrates pencil drawing the portrait. The artist who can draw well, possesses the key to all art!
