Congratulations to our students at this weekend's Portrait Drawing from Life workshop with principal instructor Fernando Freitas. They experimented with different media, papers, and they captured our models Sanna @sannnukkka and Manminder @manminder.jagait beautifully. Thank you for your hard work, and we hope to see you back at the studio again soon! #lifedrawing #realistart #realism #portrait #portraiture #carbon #pencil #drawing #art #charcoal #graphite #chalk #Toronto #workshop #atelier #academyofrealistarttoronto #artists #academicart #academicdrawing #artschool #light #shadow #form #drawingfromlife #structure #likeness #learning
You know you're about to see something glorious when you pass by a studio and hear the words "This project is making me really excited to paint again!" Level 3 student Shannon Lively @shannon.lively is creating a series of pin up paintings, all self portraits, and her newest is this wonderful figure painting. The blue was intended to be a fun and experimental underpainting, but it turned out so well that she's debating whether to paint over it with flesh tones or leave it as is.

Beautiful work in progress on Michelangelo's Dying Slave by level 3 student Chuck Vincent @charlesvincent7867. He's putting on the final touches, and we're looking forward to him starting on a brand new cast he acquired for the next one, Bernini's Costanza Bonarelli, who you can see peeking out on the left. #artist #workstation #studio #atelier #cast #castpainting #painting #oilpainting #paintinginprogress #workinprogress #wip #dyingslave #michelangelo #bernini #costanzabonarelli #art #realism #realistart #classicalrealism #ontheeasel #academicart #academicpainting #academyofrealistart #academyofrealistarttoronto
Today is the last day of short poses in our figure drawing room! Eduardo Recife @eduardorecife_ did a great job on this sketch yesterday. There's still time to join our regular program before the 10-week long pose - contact us any time to set up an appointment for a tour. #lifedrawing #figuredrawing #realistart #realism #drawing #art #graphite #pencil #anatomy #sketch #sketchbook #silhouette #light #shadow #dark #likeness #figure #drawingfromlife #academicart #Toronto #atelier #gesture #proportion #academicdrawing #contemporaryrealism #academyofrealistarttoronto
Love to draw and paint from life? So do we! And we're wrapping up 2017 with three workshops with live models. These are sketches by instructor Esteban Rodriguez @estebita.art from our last session of Drawing the Structure and Anatomy of the Head, happening again Nov 13-17 at our #Toronto atelier. The workshop will cover a systematic roadmap to drawing the portrait by understanding idealized proportions and the underlying anatomy of the head and face.

The portrait is one the most demanding but rewarding challenges that artists face. In our upcoming 3-day workshop, principal instructor Fernando Freitas will guide students to apply their skills to drawing a portrait from a live model. Students will learn to block out basic proportions and structure, build stronger forms and volumes, observe and draw convincing features, understand planal changes of the face, and achieve a compelling likeness. This workshop is suitable for all levels.
