New Portrait Commission Installed at CSHHC

My new portraits were just installed at Cornell Scott Hill Health Center’s new location in the Q House Building on Dixwell Ave in New Haven (outside their Dental Clinic, of course). The originals will be going up soon at 428 Columbus Avenue in New Haven in the Dental Clinic. The portraits were of staff and patients at CSHHC.
Brush your teeth! You never know when some artist is going to ask you to smile. : )

Join me for an interactive conversation about my process of composing a drawing-and give it a try! We’ll take our inspiration from the HCC Sculpture Garden and look at the artworks there as an artist would. You’ll see these sculptures in a whole new way as you draw your own unique compositions.

Portrait Drawing Workshop

Portrait Drawing Workshop
Offered through the Hamden Art League
Eli Whitney Museum Carter Studio
IN PERSON Sunday, June 4
10 am – 2 pm
Register Soon on HAL’s website

Learn how to see a portrait as a collection of simple value shapes that come together to communicate form, features and character. In this class you’ll be guided on a step-by-step process to translate the sometimes confounding complexity of a three dimensional head into a set of flat graphic shapes on paper.

New Class! Figure Drawing: Rhythm and Structure

Learn the “hidden rhythms” and structures of the body to create figure drawings that are both dynamic and accurate to the subject. Draw from the live model with quick and long poses to develop different ways of looking and mark-making to express the beauty of the human form. The class will include short lectures, demonstrations and individual coaching.

Fridays 9:30am – 12:30am, 9/20 – 10/25
