The Art of the Quick Sketch   

Streaming Video

In The Art of the Quick Sketch, Tim Rees takes the viewer through his unique approach to charcoal drawing that he developed and began teaching at the Palette and Chisel in Chicago, IL.  He first begins with his typical materials, covering why each is so important.  Next, he demonstrates how to make use of short poses, learning how to simplify and capture the structure of the drawing.  Then, he leads the viewer through his process in a lectured drawing, explaining in great detail each step of the way.  He ends with a final 25-minute drawing, the standard length of the longest pose of the P&C quick sketch sessions, without lecture and with the focus of his normal working method.

 

In The Art of the Quick Sketch, artist Tim Rees breaks down charcoal drawing into a logical progression, allowing anyone to see past the magic and master this traditional art.

This bundle comprehensively covers the painting program at Rees Atelier. It includes the textbook loaded with assignments, concepts, and demonstrations, as well as a set of videos of all demonstrations and most of the lectures given in the program.

 

With over 68 videos, the program discusses and demonstrates open grisaille, closed grisaille, limited palette painting, still life, figure block in, figure painting, portrait painting, and the color lecture course. The range of styles of painting demonstrated includes direct, alla prima, indirect (layered), and glazed painting, giving the viewer a broader understanding of classical to contemporary working methods. Please note, it is assumed that those who purchase the Classical Painting Bundle have sufficiently mastered the Drawing Bundle, or have advanced drawing skills. Drawing concepts are not discussed in detail in this bundle.

 

The longer demonstrations are sped up in some areas and voiced over to be between 3-5 hours.  The original speed footage of the demonstrations, up to over 15 hours each, are also included without voice over to allow the viewer to see the actual progression and to be able to see in detail how the paintings are executed.

 

Due to the size and volume of the videos, they are loaded to an external hard drive (formatted to Mac or PC), and sent out with a textbook.  On-demand online streaming through Vimeo.com is also available instead of a hard drive copy.  Due to our cost to maintain a video hosting site, the additional yearly cost for the streaming option is $49.95, due February 1st each year.  (The initial purchase price includes streaming through January 2019). Please specify Mac, PC, or Streaming in the notes section of the purchase page.

Drawing Course Bundle

 

This second year painting program is detailed in this book. The fully illustrated text is organized into 3 sections. The first section provides schedules, course descriptions, supply lists, and assignment guidelines. The second section details concepts of painting, including materials, types of realism, numerous methods of applying paint, and important information on color. The third section is filled with illustrated demonstrations and step-by-step guides walking the student through processes first demonstrated in class.

 

The end of the book follows with a glossary of terms, as well as suggested books, magazines, and artists for students to research. With nearly 500 full color images, 21 demonstrations, and tons of information that ties back to the methods and techniques of the old masters, this book provides a new and unique link to the art schools of the past without the cost or time of attending an atelier or school.

 

From its initial inception, this textbook has grown in content and evolved in format, and now can educate independently from The Academy program.

This 300 page black and white textbook organizes the Academy student’s first year. While it is not designed to be a stand alone art instruction book, it is an invaluable resource for students attending the Academy, or those interested in a similar pursuit.

 

The illustrated text is organized into 3 sections.  Section one provides schedules, course descriptions, supply lists, and assignment guidelines.  Section two is filled with illustrated demonstrations and step-by-step guides walking the student through processes first demonstrated in class.   Section three contains exercise workbooks, resource information, working tools, suggested books, and artists for students to research.  It ends with ruled pages for students to take and organize notes from the two lecture courses.  Lacking dazzling graphics and poetic insights into Art, this is a true workhorse book, densely packed with necessary information and demonstrations ranging from topics as simple as how to hold charcoal to the complexity of the entire drawing procedure.
