Hyperrealism Drawing

Friday, Jun 21, 2019 at 1:00pm

Farmington Valley Arts Center
25 Arts Center Lane
Avon, CT 06001

The intent of this class is to give the student a sound understanding of how creating lifelike and hyperrealistic drawings is done by using basic methods and theory. We will learn about the difference between Photorealism and Hyperrealism, the different processes of transferring images from photographs, how to use and apply the materials, techniques to render realistic forms, and how to create textures like hair and skin with a layering approach. We will cover tonal value relationship, drawing details and different kinds of contrast to achieve a balanced visual interest.
