Workshop Description

Get a chance to work from life and learn to draw the figure. Gesture drawing is the art of capturing the essence of an object in short spans of time. Students will get the opportunity to work from a live model and learn how to draw quickly and efficiently. This timed based approach will help students loosen up their work and take a more reactive approach to creating. This class will be taught in charcoal. 

Workshop supplies ARE INCLUDED with the registration fee. Students are NOT required to purchase any supplies for this workshop.

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.
