Join us for Atelier South's inaugural workshop by Living Master Dan Thompson. Widely considered to be the penultimate "artist's artist", Dan will give an overview of the mechanics of portraiture. By showing how best to capture the underlying structure of the subject with an awareness of anatomical geometry and perspective, a greater likeness and gesture can be achieved. This program begins with a demo from 5:00 pm on Wednesday, April 24, followed by a 3 hour intensive workshop on Friday, April 26, 9:00 - 12:00.
In 2006 Dan Thompson co-founded the Grand Central Academy of Art in New York. In 2008, he co-founded the Janus Collaborative School of Art in New York. Dan Thompson has also instructed privately at Studio 126 in New York and is on the faculty of the New York Academy of Art, The Art Students League of New York, and Studio Incamminati, in Philadelphia, PA. Space is limited
