E19. Maggie Rose: Flesh and the Figure Oil Painting Workshop

This weekend oil painting workshop will focus on the nuanced low-chroma colors of flesh. A variety of palettes, mixing and application techniques, to efficiently achieve accurate color when colors are difficult to define will be explored. During the workshop fabrics and objects which closely mimic flesh colors will be used. Students will produce studies through guided exercises. While working from the live model, students will create a series of small paintings. Each study will focus on only a section of the figure so that attention can be paid to color subtlety and to layering transparencies, translucencies and opacities to achieve ‘lifelike’ flesh.

H20. Forensic Sculpture Workshop

The Academy is pleased to announce the return of its workshop Forensic Sculpture, the nation’s first-ever art class to use actual skulls from cold cases as a base to sculpt the faces of unknown crime victims. In partnership with Forensic Artist: Joe Mullins from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office, students will use their anatomical and figurative training to reconstruct the faces of real people. This Continuing Education workshop is a rare opportunity to develop sculptural skills via real-world application. The pieces created during the workshop will be displayed at the Academy.

“The forensic sculpture workshop was an enriching experience beyond art. Originally I just wanted to learn anatomy, but I also learned about the fragility of life and the importance of identity. This experience has had a positive unexpected effect on my life and made my artistic practice better” - Marco Palli, MFA 2016 Sculpture.

“I learned about the practical application of anatomical knowledge and the interpretation of data, completely outside the realm of aesthetics. It was a benefit that helped me develop as an artist.” - Charlie Boots, MFA 2016 Drawing.

Have you ever struggled to create skin tones that are luminous and colorful when painting a portrait? In this 3-day workshop Manu Saluja offers the tools you’ll need to mix flesh tones with confidence as you work from the live  model. The key to making believable complexions is an understanding of hue, value, and chroma.

During morning demonstrations, you will learn about the structure of the head and neck, how to translate light and shade into color, and various approaches to neutralizing colors using either a controlled or open palette. Students will be shown how to plan their approach to achieving striking color and likeness.
