New Luxury Guesthouse Tall Tales Sprouts up at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa

The original plan was for the new, six-room boutique “beach house” in Old Saybrook to be a bit more diminutive than the elegant Three Stories next door. But flood elevations kept rising, necessitating engineering changes that resulted in a taller-than-expected building.

Event Date/Time

Jan 8, 2013 to Feb 26, 2013
1:00 pm until 4:00 pm

This event occurs weekly on Tuesday.

Description

Small Group Instruction in Portrait and Still Life Drawing - Jack Montmeat

Award-winning painter and illustrator Jack Montmeat has designed this course for both beginners and experienced artists interested in refreshing and honing their skills. Students may choose to work from a live portrait model or a still life set-up – or a combination of both throughout the class! Those working from the portrait model will enjoy a 3-hour pose each week, and concepts covered will include placement of the subject on the page, proportions, likeness, clothing, lighting, line quality and basic anatomy, as well as discussions on drawing each feature of the face. Students may also work from still life set-ups with instruction in light, shadows, drapery and perspective. Handouts will be given each week to illustrate key concepts, and Jack will include demonstrations, gentle guidance, and individual attention during each class. All levels are welcome. Please visit Jack’s updated website to view his own stunning paintings and drawings: www.jackmontmeat.com

To register, please call Jack directly at (860) 447-3240 or email jwmontmeat@hotmail.com.

Dates: Tuesdays, 1pm - 4pm, January 8–February 26
