Drawing and Painting From The Live Model

October 20, 2019 – October 26, 2019

Eleanor Aldrich

Painting and drawing from the live model are a time-honored tradition and remain a challenging but rewarding experience today. During this workshop students will work from the model (clothed and nude) practicing alla-prima painting and gestural drawing with oil paint and charcoal. You will work on more creative approaches to composition and be free to experiment. Participants are also given time to work with a recurring pose over the course. Come and discover the necessary time limits for each pose and what painting in the round will bring to your work. Open to all skill levels.


Eleanor Aldrich lives in Knoxville, Tennessee and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She has taught Painting and Drawing at the University of Tennessee and at Northern Arizona University. As a student at the Academie Minerva in the Netherlands, she studied figure drawing and painting. Aldrich has shown at the Drawing Center in New York and her work has been included in New American Paintings and on Artforum.com.
