David Kassan’s Drawing Workshop June 11th-13th at LAAFA. If you are interested in taking this workshop, you must call to register or email contactus@laafa.org. Call 818.708.9232.

The focus of this course will be on life drawing methods to investigate the underlying rhythm, expression and emotion of the modern portrait. We will explore charcoal on toned paper with one pose for the entire time so that we can patiently observe and record our findings. All observation will be cumulative and used towards finishing the final work. Instruction will include discussion of practical technical information on the use of charcoal and white chalk, the properties of light on form and how the topography/depth of the face’s form can be visualized and represented. Most importantly, students will learn to transcend the materials so that their full concentration is placed on expressing the model’s presence and emotion. My goal is to give this class a sense of community, where anything art related can be discussed (books, galleries, artists, techniques), debated, enlightened and experienced.
