Artistic Anatomy by Klaus Henkelmann

VATA

The course will be held over 8 Wednesday evenings from 30 October to 18 December 2019, from 6 - 9 PM. ​The class will provide an in-depth study of human anatomy for artists. We will first study the human skeleton, starting with the upper and lower limbs, the torso, the head and then identifying the corresponding muscles. We will then apply this knowledge to the drawing of a male or female life model. The anatomy will be further demonstrated by the various positions taken by the model. This course encourages individuality of expression through an exact and complete analysis of the basic elements of drawing: proportion, light and shade, anatomy, perspective, mass, planes, and design. This class is for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students. Along with lecture demonstrations the instructor works with students individually. Class size will be minimum 8 and maximum 12. Teaching will be in German and English, depending on the needs of the students. Bio: Klaus Henkelmann is a painter, draftsman and sculptor, born in Lima, Peru in 1977. He studied painting at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru and at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz. His art-work was exhibited amongst other at the Salones anuales in Lima, at the “Klasse Jerry Zeniuk & Klasse Virnich” in Munich, at the gallery Berner & Job in Wiesbaden, at the Academy of Plastic Arts and the exhibit hall Eisenturm in Mainz. Klaus currently lives in Vienna, Austria where he dedicates himself to the study and development of techniques, artistic composition, working material and art anatomy according to classical methods as well as realistic nature interpretation on a bi-dimensional plane.
