Our July 31st Workshop Lead by Roland Guidry

Roland Guidry Modeling For Figure Drawing Workshop

Our Saturday, July 31st Workshop at PAA, lead by Roland Guidry, was fun and educational. 10 members were in attendance.

He talked about the importance of creating a pleasant work environment for oneself before delving into an art project.  This allows the creative part of the brain to take over first, making the creative experience more rewarding.

Roland led and modeled for several fun figure-drawing exercises.  The drawings were  then shared and critiqued. 

Iris Gillispie modeled for one of Roland's exercises. While posing, she sketched the class while they sketched her.  For this exercise Roland also ask the members from the Writers' Club to sketch Iris with their words (on paper) and then they were invited to share what they had written.  Roland gave a very good talk about the differences in writing styles.

Sam Davis, gave a mini lesson on lighting and composition for taking pictures of people.

All-in-all, Roland provided everyone with a wonderful learning experience.

We look forward to Aug. 5th's Open Workshop, which will be held at Studio 107 instead of PAA, for this date only, from 1 to 3pm and Aug. 7th's Workshop, held at PAA, from 10 to 12:  continuing with figure drawing, sketches and color - also lead by Mr. Guidry.
