Session 2:  This 2-Week Intensive Program is designed for teens and young adults who are interested in personal development and preparatory art study.

Students will be focusing on the complexity of the human head, students will engage in portrait drawings with an emphasis on precision and capturing the idiosyncratic proportions, features, and likeness of the face. Lectures will focus on the structure of the features as derived from classical Greco/Roman aesthetics as well as the Italian Renaissance, and how to utilize structures in decoding/understanding more naturalized forms. During the end of the program students will be introduced to drawing the portrait from a live model.

Students will be treated to Special Guest Artists and LAAFA Faculty for Lectures, Demos and More…

*During the course of this program, students will receive individual projects ranging from simple objects, cast studies, still life and drawing from the live model.  Students may also learn the principals of painting. This will be based on their drawing progress in the program.
