Jacqueline Kamin: Figure Painting Workshopby Matthew Innis |
Figure Painting Workshop
Hours: 10:45 am – 5:00pm
These workshops are offered at BACAA
Learn the Basics of Drawing and Painting the Figure
Each morning we will draw the figure by learning the important anatomical landmarks to locate. Using a skeleton for reference, students will learn to decipher bone structure by understanding vital landmarks to note on the human figure. This knowledge will create a confidence that allows freedom of line when capturing gesture—the life of a drawing.
Jacqueline Kamin’s illustrious career was nurtured at the Corcoran Museum School and later at the Sculpture Studio and the Art Students League in New York. Her poetic and painterly style developed early on and soon became recognized by many prestigious art organizations through awards and juried shows at the Bowers Museum, the Salmagundi Club, the California Art Club and Oil Painters of America. Her work was included in several internationally-known art expositions held in Hong Kong and New York City as well as the National Museum for Women Artists in her home town, Washington, D.C. She is past president of American Women Artists and brought new energy to the organization with her special vision for women in the art world today. Kamin has been featured in Southwest Art and Art of the West and has her work in such collections as U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, Entrepreneur Magazine, Manocherian Brothers of New York, and Big Horn Westinghouse Corporation. As a way of sharing her artistic passion, she continues to teach nationally for Bright Light Fine Art Workshops. Currently her work can be seen at the Saks Gallery in Denver, Co. and the Lilypad Gallery in Rhode Island and Minn. She will teach again this coming year at BAY Area Classcial Artist Atelier.
