Costa Dvorezky’s Workshopby Carles Gomila |
Costa will teach you the methods and concepts that he himself uses in his personal work, clarifying all the principles while doing two live demonstrations every day. Then you will have the opportunity to show off and apply what you learned while he corrects your work.
If you’re a hardworking student and have solid notions of drawing and oil painting, you will find a way to reconcile discipline and artistic expression. If you’re more like a rookie Costa will give you a good push up and you will notice a big change. Of course, do not forget to continue studying the class notes for a while to back up ideas properly.
Costa will change the way you observe the model, so take a deep breath and keep in mind that you’ll leave some old habits buried back in Menorca. And now, cheer up, this is all for your good!
Summarizing, this is the knowledge you’ll get from this workshop:
✓ You’ll learn to paint precise but loose
✓ You’ll learn to be responsible for the process, not the result
✓ You’ll learn to think plastically, not just developing paintings
Every day, 9:00 to 12:00h.
Costa begins the session with a master class and a one-hour demonstration. Then he will dedicate the remaining two hours to give personalized instructions to each student.
Every day, 14:00 a 17:00h.
In the afternoon, the same: one hour of live demonstration and two hours of corrections to the students.
This is the plan:
During two days you will paint studies of whole figure and half body. This means oil notes and compositions executed alla prima where you will apply the concepts that Costa will explain. You’ll probably paint about 4 or 5 pieces.
Then there will be a long three days pose, where you will have to give yourself and settle those ideas that you have rehearsed in the previous days. You will notice a change in your painting. But do not be scared, that’s good.
You’d better start thinking what you’ll ask Costa Dvorezky!
This is the program, but the core of it all is outside the studio. During lunch, soirees, at the gardens, at the swimming pool… we’ll be talking about painting aaaaall the time.
Of course, we want you to get the best out of the teacher and ask him what you want to know about his creative process, his rituals, his training, his manias, etc. Costa is a guy with an AWESOME training who has managed to give his painting a turn, so I’m sure you have a lot to learn from him beyond studio walls.
