The Anatomy of the Head and Core takes the formidable task of how to organize the complexity of the figure as a construction from the skeleton up; it begins the series with a strong emphasis on how to re-create the vitality and life force energy found in the torso and connection into the head.

A 5 week course is designed to teach the professional artist the critical foundations necessary to accurately construct the human head and face and it’s connection to the core. This webinar uses a three-dimensional approach; it is geared toward the sculptor or draughtsman. 

The knowledge from this class will change how you see the model through portraiture and how to connect the head to the body. It will ultimately increase your ability and creativity as an artist. This knowledge is organized by aesthetics and will give you a step-by-step methodology as to how to proceed through the framework and foundation to a highly detailed and finished form full of life force energy. 
 

It will share the underlying organizational lessons of anatomy and structural construction of the figure for artists committed to mastering the human body with dynamic anatomical movement found in the head and core.

These principles of how the core of the body and connection into the head is structurally assembled, and how it moves through space, are the result of 30 years of Studio practice with over 50,000 hours of working from life models.

Disegno: The foundation of Art
The Italian word for fine art drawing is 'disegno'. But its meaning extends beyond the literal idea of draftsmanship. Disegno is the principle/method which underlies sculpture, as well as fine art painting and architecture. Above all, disegno constitutes the intellectual component of the visual arts, which justifies their elevation from craft to fine art.

This webinar has been created to educate the visual artist in how to elevate the figure to speak about something universal and sacred. The artistic skills to design and compose the figure and so raise the art to a higher level will be presented. The information will empower the student to progress in both design and composition enabling the visual artist to take the next step away from the generic studio representation of the model. 

What is form, and how is it revealed in the translation from life into art?

It is about the way the universe is assembled and how all the parts fit together in a harmonious hierarchy of importance within the whole.

By designing the figure using architectural solids, the figure becomes elevated and goes beyond rendering and copying.

Spirals become crucial in showing the energetic force of the figure. The concept of form as a convex mapping system of the whole body pushing out into space creates the idea of surface tension.

This webinar will help you distinguish your work from the mundane and generic every day model in studio art.  The main objective here is to create art that begins to speak about your own individual experience using intelligent systems of design in art found traditionally in the most powerful periods of art history.

Figure composition, architectural structure, anatomical construction, spiraling and rhythmic forms, concepts of light and shade, will all be covered in a return to the concept that the idea found in the Italian Rennaissance.

Five Tuesdays @ 8:00 PM NYC time beginning MAY 10, 2016.

Structure and Anatomy of the Head is an intensive 5 session webinar that teaches the professional artist the critical foundations necessary to accurately construct the human head and face. This webinar uses a three-dimensional approach; it is geared toward the sculptor or draughtsman. The course will share the underlying organizational lessons of anatomy and design from the Old Masters with artists committed to mastering the human head. 

Structure and Anatomy of the Head takes the formidable task of how to organize the complexity and hierarchy of all the smaller parts within the life model’s head, from the skeleton to the surface tension of bones and flesh beneath the skin. An in-depth analysis of each of the features, and how they are put together within the whole head, will be thoroughly investigated. The skull and its subcutaneous landmarks, the muscles, structural forms, subcutaneous fat, cartilage and tendons and ligaments around each of the facial features, will be explained to the smallest detail. This knowledge enables expression, force, and luminosity in an artist’s work. 

With these tools, you will be able to analyze and reproduce the tremendous amount of detail and specificity of this particular, crucial part of the human figure. This webinar will give you the understanding of how the skull and all its parts are put together and how to bring life force energy to your art in its translation from life. 

The knowledge from this class will change how you see the model through portraiture. It will ultimately increase your ability and creativity as an artist. This knowledge is organized by aesthetics and will give you a step-by-step methodology as to how to proceed through the framework and foundation to a highly detailed and finished form full of life force energy.

A 5 week course dedicated to translating the body into structural and anatomical terms. There will be a strong emphasis on how the body is broken down into planes. This knowledge will enable you to construct the figure in a dynamic and vital fashion creating a sense of life.

Principles of light, massing, rhythm, and composition organized through the grammar of anatomy will be taught. After having worked in the studio for over 30 years with life models for over 50,000 hours, I have learned the figure in a way that goes well beyond what is found in artistic anatomy books. In this webinar, I am very happy to pass this education on to you. As a sculptor and draughtsman trained in the Classical ateliers of Italy, I see the element of 3 dimensionality and aesthetic beauty as of critical concern.

I will teach you how light is used to show the way the body is assembled. Light reveals the construction and structure of the body, and without light there is no form. I will pass on to you the secrets of how to subdivide the body into parts and how all those parts fit together to create a unified whole. The hierarchy of the figure’s masses will be discussed in detail.
