"'Carmel By The Sea' En Plein Air"

Paint along the Monterey and Carmel Coastline en plain air with Plein Air Painters of America member, Randall Sexton. Open to all levels, this 3 (or 4) day workshop is especially geared to encourage the experienced artist to reach greater heights in their work. Sexton will review the basics of solid picture making - while sharing his own methods for simplifying the complex. Three days (weather permitting) will be spent on location en plain air, while an (optional) fourth studio day will focus on simplifying the figure directly (with a model). Daily demonstrations will be followed up with individual assistance at the easel.

"Sculpting the Figure with Stephen Perkins"
November 9-12, 2019
 

This workshop will appeal to anyone interested in the figure as an art form: sculptors, painters, draftsmen, and graphic artists. Working from the male model, the first two days will focus on the archetypal or memory shapes of the figure by abstracting forms into simpler geometry and convex planes and working in a hierarchy from larger to smaller shapes. Working from the female model, the last two days will focus on working methods in sculpting a dynamic pose from life, including capturing the gesture, blocking in the figure using a straight line method, carry through lines, rhythmic patterns, harmonies, and proportion. Stephen Perkins was trained in the classical method from Walker Hancock and others and currently teaches at Studio Incamminati.

"Sculpting the Portrait with Stephen Perkins"
November 14-17, 2019
 

This workshop will appeal to anyone interested in the portrait as an art form: sculptors, painters, draftsmen, and graphic artists alike. Working from Stephen’s demonstration, the first two days will focus on how to block in the head using basic convex planes, and then working in a hierarchy from larger to smaller shapes, create the fundamental structure or map of the head. Working from the live model, the last two days will focus on working methods in sculpting a portrait from life. Stephen Perkins was trained in the classical method from Walker Hancock and others and currently teaches at Studio Incamminati.
