About the Course

Alison Stinely, MFA


Various methods of recording the human form from a model in-studio will be undertaken during this one-day workshop. Students will be introduced to techniques including contour drawing, linear gesture drawing, and shadow mass gesture drawing, and will work from the most basic methods to more complex techniques. The day will culminate with an extended pose and longer-term drawing and a brief group critique.

No drawing experience is required; this workshop is perfect for beginning artists and will also be beneficial for those who work at an intermediate level.

All necessary supplies will be provided by Foundation Art Academy. Students may bring their own supplies if they wish, but this is not necessary.

The workshop takes place from from 10AM to 4:00PM in a lovely studio space at the Erie Center for Arts & Technology (650 East Ave Suite 120, Erie, PA 16503). A 30 minute lunch break will be taken half-way through the day. Students should pack a lunch and bring a covered beverage. Refrigeration is available.

*Enrollment Fee: $125
