VAI will be holding our Figure Academy again this year. This workshop is great for artists at any stage, because:
- It helps students create portfolio pieces for college preparation and potential scholarships, and creates several finished pieces of art.
-It helps introduce students to new media and techniques in drawing and painting, and develops their observational skills, since the students draw from live models.
-It gives students the opportunity to work in a sustained studio environment, a new experience for many students.
-It helps students loosen up and make quick aesthetic decisions in regards to spatial relationships proportions, value, and anatomical structure.
-It gives students the chance to work with professional artists with a broad range of styles, and allows for individual attention and coaching.
