    Workshop Description

    Figure Drawing will introduce participants to the basic principles and techniques to successfully draw the human figure. Participants will have the opportunity to draw from a nude model and/or clothed model, with guided instruction. Students will learn how to lay out the basic structure of the figure in space and build upon that structure with light and shadow in graphite and/or charcoal. This is a relaxed environment and all ability levels welcome! These workshops are ideal for artists at the beginner level with some basic drawing experience. Occurring once a month, these workshops will take place at either The Art Garage or the NWTC Artisan & Business Center. See the above schedule for the location and instructor details.

    Workshop supplies are NOT INCLUDED with the registration fee. Students ARE required to purchase any supplies for this workshop.  Participants should bring at least a sketchbook and No. 2 pencil with an eraser. Other suggested supplies to bring (but not required) include: sketchbooks; drawing pads; range of graphite pencils, 2B-4H (not mechanical); charcoal; charcoal pencils; pink eraser (hard eraser with an edge); kneaded eraser; chamois; tortillon (blending stump).

    Further details for virtual option will be sent out the  morning of the workshop. Please be sure to contact us if you will be joining virtually instead of in-studio

    Instructor Biography
    Nathan Brandner is a full time working artist from Wisconsin. His work encompasses landscapes, still lifes and portraits done in an expressive yet representational manner. Executing paintings and drawings from life is the cornerstone of his craft. Drawn to the beauty of the way light interacts with his subject Nathan seeks to illuminate and share the mystery in life that is often taken for granted.
    Having a degree from UW-Stevens Point in art, classical training in Florence Italy and education at the Academy of Fine Art in Wisconsin Nathan has taken the time to carefully hone his craft. With continual workshops under modern day masters and studying those who have come before, it is his firm belief that painting and drawing is very much a learned skill. It is a practice that with extensive study anyone with enough curiosity can achieve.
