In this dynamic, fast-paced, 5-week class, Philadelphia artist Martin Campos will challenge participants to push their artistic boundaries as they explore the human form in pastels. With a strong combined emphasis on gesture and movement and learning how the form relates to surface tension and space, students will work directly from observation using a limited palette.

The core of Campos’ work revolves around the figure and is a point of departure for creating narratives. With years of solid training in observation and constant drawing, Martin has created a fluid and symbiotic relationship with the model as muse. His goal is to impart this knowledge to his students.



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.
