2014 Master Artist Workshop – Brian Bomeisler
Monday – Friday, May 5 – 9, 2014
9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Brian Bomeisler is back by popular demand after a sold out class last spring. This intensive class is designed for individuals with little or no prior drawing training and perhaps believe that learning to draw well is only possible for those lucky people with “inborn talent”. However, it has been proven that the global skill of drawing any perceived object, person or place requires five basic component perceptual skills. These skills are the perception of edges, spaces, relationships, lights and shadows, and the whole or gestalt. Global or whole skills, such as reading, driving and drawing, in time become automatic with the integration of the component skills. Instruction by Brian Bomeisler, Dr. Betty Edwards’ son. Each day begins with a lecture on one of the five skills required. After lectures, students participate in drawing exercises, with Brian’s instruction, through the day. The day will end with a critique of the day’s session.
Brian Bomeisler received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute Brooklyn, New York in 1975, and has been a working and showing artist since then. He lives and works in Soho, New York City. In 1985 he received a Fellowship from the NEA and has paintings in collections at The Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla, The Hyde Collection, New York and corporate and private collections around the world. Bomeisler taught alongside his mother, Betty Edwards, since 1988 and since her retirement in 1998. Since then he has been leading the Drawing and Painting Workshops worldwide. He has also been an instructor at the New York Academy of Art for a number of years. His illustrations appear alongside the text in “The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”.
