In the course of time an artist forges a singular language of expression from the ore of personal experience, the fire of practice, and the fuel of artistic instruction. In each the language grows to become a distinctive means of analyzing and expressing Reality. It becomes the equivalent of an inimitable, individual style. In art education, according to tradition, a unique position is occupied by the study of figure drawing. It is the beginning for beginners and, for others no longer considering themselves such, it is a space of new beginning. So as to fulfill this role, instruction in figure drawing is always a matter of fundamental principles, of which there are two primordial pairs: shape and movement, form and light. Innumerable are the modes of drawing and instruction in drawing, but all come down to the four above mentioned factors. In the weeklong Figure Drawing in Pencil workshop with Tony Ryder, the foundation is laid through instruction and practice, and the common root is planted and nourished, out of which all forms of drawing arise.
