This course is divided into three units of study: Bargue linear copies, the Cast and Still Life Drawing. A main focus of this class is to study proportions that are a major component of all drawing and painting. The better one is at this skill, the easier painting and drawing will be in a future.

In the beginning of the course, Charles Bargue drawing plates will be the reference to study fundamental skills. Learning to "see" angles, tilts and points across a flat 2-D surface leads to a more accurate judgment of proportion (height to width). Once these linear skills of proportion are acquired, students apply them to drawing from life using the cast and still-life objects. They will build upon the Charles Bargue technique and advance to learn how to "block in" simple masses of flat value.

In the next stage of the course, students should progress from flat shapes into fully realized cast objects. They will study the abstract relationships between line, proportion, shape, planes, mass, and value. Final still life drawings will be composed from simple objects, and students will explore the relative value.

Katya Held, a Studio Incamminati alumna and instructor, has had her work displayed worldwide in galleries and exhibition halls including Newman Galleries in Philadelphia, the National Arts Club in New York, the League of Artists of Russia and the Baron Stiglitz Museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
