Structural Anatomy of the Head and Neck with Michael Grimaldi
Three-day Lecture Series at Hudson Hall, Hudson NY

6-8pm — Wednesday, August 14 - Friday, August 16, 2024

In this this 3-day lecture series, the structural anatomy of the head, neck and upper thorax and its application to portraiture will be examined towards developing the advanced skills necessary to draw, paint and sculpt the head from direct observation. By identifying and separating anatomy's underlying principles and studying them independently to create a well-unified and holistic understanding, participants will learn to interpret the visual experience with intelligence, apply this knowledge to their work, and cultivate an ability to strategically problem-solve as they approach representational portraiture.

Through interactive lectures and demonstrations, students will be introduced to the in-depth study of the musculo-skeletal system and learn how a working knowledge of anatomy, morphology and kinesiology can be used to translate and interpret the essentials of effective portraiture.

Open to all levels $175
