Linear Perspective Workshop: Saturday 24th October 2009

Institute of Classical Architecture, 20 West 44th Street, Manhattan. Please contact Leah Aron at 212-730-9646, ext. 101
This 7-hour course is an introduction to linear perspective for the beginner or for the intermediate student who wishes a review. The "delightful and noble art" of linear perspective is the flesh, heart, and soul of classic pictorial space, from placing the objects in a still life to the disposition of figures in a composition. It is the intellectual basis for representationist thought and spatial illusionism.

This workshop will cover the essentials of perspective: including one-, two-, and three-point perspective, providing a means for which the artist may improve independently in his or her own work.


"Flow, The Life and Times of Philadelphia's Schuylkill River" by Beth Kephart (for which a painting of mine was used for the cover). "Beth Kephart's Flow is just a sumptuous book - haunting, poetic, lit up with gems of beauty and history. We engorge ourselves on materialism. The legacy of our generation will be our consumerism. But Flow and its exquisite evocation of the Schuylkill River reminds us that nature still trumps everything. Which makes the book all the more beautiful and all the more rare."

-Buzz Bissinger, author of "A Prayer for the City" and "Friday Night Lights".
