SKU: KM2019-2 Category:


Friday, October 25, 2019:  9am-5pm

This workshop led by fine artist, Karen McLain, is designed to build accuracy. Through basic anatomy and by learning the most important areas to define form and relationships. This session includes seeing the general shapes, using units of measurements, finding areas that form shadows from bone and muscle mass, learning to use negative shapes, and finding new ways of seeing to overcome being overwhelmed.

A multimedia presentation will allow students to see and sketch wild horses in different poses and intense action. Materials for sketches with pencil/graphite, Sharpie marker/pen, and medium size sketch pad. (11×14 or 12×16).  Anatomy knowledge and insight will also be given by expert, Meredith Hudes-Lowder whose science, medical, and biology background will add a depth that will greatly enhance experience.

Limited to 12, participants will gain skills and techniques in the classroom to prepare for capturing forms when painting from life.  Karen McLain’s main painting subject is wild horses including those at Assateague Island National Seashore.  This is an excellent opportunity to learn from subject matter experts in an intimate setting. This class is one of four workshops that can be taken singly or as a complete series for a reduced rate.
