Drawing the Features of the Head
with Gary Faigin

Thursdays | Apr 15 – May 20 | 12:30pm-1:30pm

Nothing is more emotionally compelling to observe than the human face. Magazines flaunt idealized facial beauty; Hollywood packages expressive faces for big-screen cinema; TV capitalizes on talking heads to give the facts and features of the day. Over six lectures, Gary Faigin, author of the acclaimed The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression, presents an animated discourse on the foundations of drawing the head. Drawing from models and showing slides, he guides you to a broader understanding of this fascinating subject.

Out of the Shadows of Men: Rediscovering Women Artists of the Past with Susan Brangers

Fridays | Apr 16 – May 14 | 9:30am-11:00am

Artwork by Artemisia Gentileschi. 

For centuries, the work of women artists had been misattributed or only acknowledged in relation to the work of men. An effort has been underway since the later 20th century to identify, study, and bring to the public’s attention the work of these often overlooked or forgotten women. In this class, we will rediscover the works of a few of these great women artists, including Artemisia Gentileschi, Judith Leyster, and Rosa Bonheur.

A Study of Extremes: Hellenistic Sculpture and Its Influence with Susan Brangers

Fridays | May 21 – Jun 18 | 9:30am-11:00am

The Hellenistic period of Greek art saw a shift from Classical sculpture’s serene perfection to studies of the extremes of human nature—of age, emotions, and desires. The discovery of Hellenistic sculpture in Rome during the Renaissance introduced new possibilities for depicting the figure in painting and sculpture. In this class, we will examine Hellenistic sculpture, its qualities, and its influence on later painters and sculptors, especially Michelangelo.
