Vosler Young Artists’ Studio @ MPA

M-F, August 12–16, 2019
9:30 am– 4 pm
6601.119

For any young artist with the desire to learn classical drawing. No previous experience is necessary.

Join us as we welcome back Kerry Vosler and her highly regarded atelier studio for the third year in a row!  This workshop will introduce the young artist to a classical atelier program of instruction.  Students will learn to draw through direct observation led by master instructor, Kerry Vosler.

Students will draw a variety of pictures in charcoal throughout the week including copy work from the late 19th century, Bargue-Gerome Drawing Course, culminating in a session with a live model on Friday afternoon. The Bargue drawings this year will include different content on the human skull and muscles of the face and neck. Students will have at least two finished portfolio drawings by the end of the week, and parents and families are encouraged to attend the closing certificate ceremony on Friday. During lunch, guest artists will be invited to speak to the students. Stay tuned for all details.
