Master Class with Andre Pater: Drawing a Live Model in Sporting Mode

Contemporary Sporting Artist Andre Pater leads an intensive afternoon workshop concentrating on figure drawing with a live model. This Master Class encourages both working professional artist and serious amateurs to build upon their existing skills and learn new ones from the renowned artist.

Pater considers drawing to be a phase in the creative process and will elaborate on his process and about a drawing’s destination as an informed decision of a draftsman. In the Master Class, Pater will cover a multitude of topics including detailed demonstrations, how to format a composition on paper, finding balance, and directions and measurements as a key to a composition.

Participants will begin with quick warm-up drawings and progress to longer poses by the model dressed in polo regalia. Every participant will draw and receive individual attention and feedback from Pater.

Supplies are provided, but participants must bring their own sketch books.
