Drawing in the Russian academic tradition.
Structural Analysis of the human figure by Professor Kurkov, Repin Academy of Fine Arts.
This intensive one week course will emphasize a process-based approach to development of figure drawing, including analysis of anatomy, form, construction, and perspective. Professional models will present a series of long and short poses specifically designed to challenge intuitive, analytical and investigative observational drawing processes. Using a variety of drawing materials this course will address traditional and experimental techniques, enabling one to challenge his or her artistic abilities. This figure drawing course will encourage students to examine their current approach to drawing and continue to develop individual personal style. This workshop is suitable for intermediate and advanced students.
Instructor will demonstrate by drawing structural diagrams similar to those above to help students understand the specific characteristics of the model.

Portrait by August Rodin
"I invent nothing, I rediscover." (August Rodin)
If you are like most artists,
you probably stive to express what you see, and most
important, how you feel about it.
Working under the guidance of an outstanding artist and sculptor Tatyana Zhurkov, you will proceed step by step in sculpting a portrait from a live model. While still working in a school environment focusing on proportions, anatomy, structure and movement, the goal is to make an artistic piece, something that expresses how you interpret nature.
The Russian tradition is rooted in the methodologies going back to the Greek, Roman, Italian and French 19th century sculpture.
Workshop meets 9.30
a.m.- 2.30 p.m, Monday through Friday.
Tuition is $475 for 5 days of sculpting (model fee included).
"Those were five of the best
days I've had in a long time. Not only did I learn a
great deal, but I felt truely inspired by the atmosphere
of the class. It was fun without ever being silly or
trivial, serious without being oppressive, and very
creative without being false."
Ted Sheridan, sculptor from Philadelphia
