This demo/talk is part of our Technique Takeaway series.
Date: Friday, November 13, 2020
Time: 2:00-3:30PM PST
Discover specific art techniques that you can ‘take away’ from some of your favorite artists and apply to your own work. Each one and a half hour presentation will showcase a different process that each of these artists incorporates in their daily art practice. Instruction will be through a combination of lecture and demonstration by the artists.
Our Technique Takeaways are presented live via Zoom. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with the instructor via the Zoom chat box and will have access to the recorded session for two weeks. You will receive a Zoom meeting link and passcode the day before the talk. To take part, you will need a camera enabled computer OR an IPad/smart tablet OR a smart phone (android or IOS) and a strong internet connection.
The beauty and the complexity of the form has been a challenge for the artist for centuries. From the majestic work of Michelangelo to the spirited drawings of Egon Schiele, it has been a challenge to record the movement and intuitive aspects of the moving feeling form in a brief and powerful lasting way.
In this talk and demonstration, Martin will reveal the methods and strategies he utilizes to capture movement in his drawings; using the examples of the masters both past and present as inspiration.
Arcenio Martin Campos studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He has taught workshops in South Africa, Ireland, New Zealand and Spain. He is currently based in the Delaware Valley region, working in Philadelphia, and is dedicated to impressing upon every student his enthusiasm and drive with what the form presents and inspire those who strive to document the human condition.
