The figure has been at the center of Scott Noel's art for forty years. The workshop will explore two complementary experiences with the life model. On the first day, the morning session will develop an interpretation of the body emphasizing gesture, mass, and volume. In the afternoon we will make an extended drawing in grisaille using black and white acrylic or gray pastels to evolve the body's forms into a shape-map that becomes continuous with the space surrounding the model. On the second day we will work for the entire session in oil or acrylic to integrate the previous day's discoveries with Charles Hawthorne's ideas of color discovery through the "spot of color" approach to the naming of shapes in the visual field. Scott Noel will work alongside the attending artists and share materials developed for a catalogue of teaching drawings and paintings.
