Huntsville, Ala – The Huntsville Museum of Art is proud to offer a Master Artist Workshop with Brian Bomeisler entitled Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Back by popular demand, the class, designed for all levels, is scheduled for October 3-7 and October 8-9, 2016, in the Museum Academy classrooms overlooking Big Spring Park.
This workshop is designed for individuals with little or no prior experience with drawing, and for those who believe that learning to draw well is only possible for people with “inborn talent.” Contrary to this belief, it has been proven that the global skill of drawing any perceived object, person, or place requires five basic component perceptual skills. These skills include the perception of edges, spaces, relationships, lights and shadows, and the whole or gestalt. Global skills, such as reading, driving, and drawing, in time, become automatic with the integration of the component skills. Instruction by Brian Bomeisler, Dr. Betty Edwards’ son.
Each day will begin with a lecture on one of the five skills required. After lectures, students participate in drawing exercises, with Brian’s instruction, throughout the day. Each day, the class will end with a critique of the day’s session.
Brian Bomeisler received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York in 1975, and since then, has been a working and showing artist. He lives and works in Soho, New York City. In 1985, he received a Fellowship from the NEA.
Bomeisler has paintings in collections at The Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla, The Hyde Collection, New York, and corporate and private collections around the world. Bomeisler has taught alongside his mother, Betty Edwards, since 1988 and since her retirement in 1998. Since then, he has been leading these Drawing and Painting Workshops worldwide. He has also been an instructor at the New York Academy of Art for a number of years. His illustrations appear alongside the text in The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.
