An instructed drop-in session that meets for some guidance through tutorials and exercises in the art of figure drawing. No fighting☺ Just art-making, art-playing and art-exploring with the live fine arts model as muse, and experienced instructor Wyatt Landis as guide and host. This is perfect for anyone who wants that little bit of mentoring in a comfortable, inspiring studio so they can brush up on the basics. Learn from a pro!
“All types of knowledge ultimately lead to self-knowledge”
“I have a strong passion for helping others learn, particularly the fine arts since invariably these pursuits result in self-discovery. It is very exciting for me to be a part of the process by which someone grows through personal revelation, intense focus and honest expression. I know that it takes hard work and dedication to attain a proficiency in any visual language, and I feel I really know how to inspire students.”
Wyatt Landis attended the New York Academy of Art and the Art Student’s League. After earning his MFA from the Academy he began an apprenticeship with one of the most respected (and controversial) figurative painters in the world, Odd Nerdrum. he studied with Mr. Nerdrum in 2006 and again in 2009 in Norway, Sweden and Iceland. Landis has a strong understanding of ecorche, human anatomy, and kinesiology and figure structure.
Landis has taught at Northwest College of Art, in Poulsbo, Washington, for three years as an art instructor, covering a number of studio courses, including Introduction to Drawing, Figure Drawing, Advanced Figure Drawing, Painting 1, and Painting and Social Change. He has worked with students with a diverse range of interests, backgrounds, personal challenges and future goals. His interaction with students has occurred in different settings and around very different activities, from independent research, one-to-one mentoring, senior thesis committee, and various workshops to have also taught a wide variety of art classes at VSA of Washington and the Center School, both at Seattle Center, to middle and high school students who have learning disabilities.
