Instruction will be in the form of demonstrations, accompanied by explanations of the principles being demonstrated, and as much individual critique as you can absorb. Explanations will be phrased in simple easy to understand language. No sophisticated- sounding but semantically dubious university- speak.
The principles are rather simple ideas, but they may be new to you. What is complicated however is that there are a lot of them, and they all must be harmonized and coordinated together. There are two categories of the most important principles- Light and forms. Without light all is darkness, forms are invisible. Without forms to reflect it, light too is invisible. To suggest what the eyes are transmitting then, we need a comprehensive understanding of the effects and actions of light, and a very extensive knowledge of human structure.
The actions and effects of light will be analyzed. They seem to be consistent, logical, and coherent. I see a lot of erroneous information out there about how light works.
I believe that the treatment of the structure of organic human forms and the effects of actions upon them has not previously been taught in such detail.
We will study what appears to be the amazingly “designed” character of Nature’s human forms. Yes, the subject is vast, but in 5 weeks intensive I can show you what there is to learn and how to represent it. At the end of the session I want you to leave on a higher level. Your job will be to keep a very open attitude, pay close attention, and never to hesitate to ask if you need clarification. It’s very exciting to learn new things!
I hope you will join us,
