Studio Incamminati, School for Contemporary Realist Art
340 North 12th Street, Suite 500, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19107

This immersive experience is centered on daily demonstrations, hands-on practice and conversations on art. A special focus is on form drawing, studying how light and shade are used to create volume. Students will learn how to start a drawing by focusing on the design and movement. They will develop more precision through a careful block-in drawing and finding shadow shapes. Students also focus on:
• Form: Exploring half-tones through tonal rendering
• One day devoted to working on toned paper and heightened with white.

This workshop is for students of all skill levels from people — those just starting through to advanced. We have group discussions and demonstrations daily. Students leave with a clear understanding of the elements of drawing and how to improve their work.
