Figure Drawing and Painting: Weeklong Intensive (Studio School) *In-Person* *NEW*

With the use of models, we will do various exercises (both quick and longer-term) to analyze the figure and the bodies form. We will begin the week drawing the figure, using line and value in a variety of dry media. We will then progress to painting, discussing color as it relates to skin tones and begin to find out where "likeness" comes from. Drawing and painting experience is required.

Artist

Jeremy Durling began to draw and paint from the figure at the age of sixteen through a high school dual enrollment program. He received an Associates Degree from the Mount Wachusett Community College with a concentration in painting under John Pacheco. He moved on to Massachusetts College of Art, where Nancy Mccarthy and Christopher Chippendale would become his mentors. It was at Massart that Jeremy first studied with George Nick. Massart's prestigious George Nick prize allowed Jeremy to spend 5 months seeing Europe and studying in Florence. He graduated from Massart with a BFA in painting in 2009, and continued his lessons with George independently. He studied with George for a total of four years. Jeremy is represented in Boston by the Sloane Merrill Gallery. Website: jeremydurling.com
