Judith Kunzlé teaches July workshop on drawing the figure in motion

​The Rossmoor Art Association is pleased to offer a summer workshop with figure artist Judith Kunzlé. Kunzlé did a demonstration for the RAA in May on using color to convey the human form in movement and space. Many RAA members requested that she return to Rossmoor to teach a workshop.
 
The workshop takes place on three consecutive Saturday mornings—July 15, 22 and 29—from 9:00 am to noon in Studio One at Gateway. Kunzlé recommends taking the three sessions as a series. However, students may sign up for one or two sessions, but should definitely take the first workshop.
 
Sessions are limited to 15 students so each person gets maximum assistance from the instructor. Beginners, as well as accomplished artists, are encouraged to attend and become “heads, shoulders and torsos” above other figure artists.
 
Kunzlé offers an easy entry into understanding the dynamics of drawing the human figure in proportion.
 
In the first workshop (July 15), students learn about the basic proportions of the human figure, then use paper and a simple folding technique to make a 2-dimensional human puppet in proper proportions and use the puppets to sketch the figure in different gestures.
 
In the second workshop (July 22), each participant poses for a short time while the others draw the pose. Use of color to express motion is introduced in this workshop.  “This always is the FUN session, lots of laughs,” Kunzlé says.
 
In the third workshop (July 29), students work from a video of a live dancer. Kunzlé stops the video to allow students to draw or paint the figure in movement.  At the end of the sessions, Kunzlé promises “You will be excited to see how well you’ve captured motion and the figure in your work.”
 
To register, make a check payable to RAA, for $185 to enroll in all three workshops, $150 to enroll in two of the three workshops, and $75 to enroll in only the first workshop. Note on the check memo line: “Figure in Motion” and the date or dates you want to attend.
 
Mail the check to RAA Classes, 1966 Tice Valley Blvd, #278, Walnut Creek 94595. Checks must be received by July 12.  Also include your address, phone number and email address to receive class notifications and a suggested materials list.
 
You must be a member of RAA to register. New members add annual dues of $10 to the registration check and include a new member form. Forms and a calendar of activities are available at www.rossmoorart.com or in Art Studio 1.

    I used to think workshops are simply a waste of time and money because it usually costs an arm and a leg. As time goes by, I was late to realize I haven’t been learning anything new in years and I lack the required brain exercise for a human to learn new things. They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks but the things you already knew, you can always brush up on your skills. How can you do this if you use the same method of self study and you are not open to learning new things from different people?
