Steve Huston is a painter's painter, whose works are poetic, poignant, and masterfully powerful, coveted by artists and art collectors alike. Steve has been an extraordinarily effective mentor whose instruction, books, and guidance have produced an impressive number of accomplished acolytes.
This IN-PERSON ONLY 2-day workshop will finally tackle the subject matter that students have been requesting from us for years: Steve's approach to the full-value, long-pose figure drawing in charcoal.
In his usual precise and generous teaching approach, Steve will take you step-by-step through his process of developing drawings of the human figure from the direct and straightforward lay-in which will be familiar to Art Mentors and New Masters Academy students to complete, finished, jaw-dropping works of art.
In order to maximize the training experience, multiple live models will be scheduled each day for a wide variety of personalities and body types. If you have been looking for a way to push your drawings further, produce finished works of fine art on paper, or even do more useful preparatory full-drawings for paintings, this class is perfect for you.
After receiving feedback from in-person students attending our ordinarily live-streamed workshops, we have decided to offer this class in-person only to ensure that students attending gain the best learning results possible. Due to the subject matter, Steve will be doing more demos and critiques, and lecturing on the easel less, setting aside more time for personal one-on-one guidance and interaction than in previous events.
Steve Huston is a native of Alaska who received his degree from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. He first established himself as a successful illustrator, commissioned by such high-profile clients as Paramount Pictures, MGM, and Warner Brother After holding a faculty position at the Art Center, in addition to teaching courses in life drawing, anatomy, and composition for the artists and animators of Disney and Dreamworks SKG studios, Huston earnestly began his career as a fine artist, winning top prizes at the California Art Club Gold Medal Show two years in a row. A string of gallery shows followed, first in Los Angeles and then in New York and elsewhere.
Huston continues exhibiting his work widely. His works are poetic, poignant, and masterfully powerful, and his figures are iconic archetypes of masculine and feminine line and form. His work is much sought after by prestigious private collectors, distinguished fellow artists, and other cognoscenti of the contemporary art world. He has been an extraordinarily effective mentor whose instruction and guidance have produced an impressive number of accomplished acolytes
