Lothar Speer Via Zoom Tuesdays 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. January, February and March 2021
The Key West Art Center is happy to have Lothar Speer return as our figure drawing instructor on Zoom as a virtual art instructor. Lothar studied at The National Academy of The Fine Arts, Vienna, where he received The Johannes Fueger Medal, a European distinction in the field of figure drawing. He received his BFA from Chicago's Loyola University and his MFA from Philadelphia's Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts. His work was shown internationally as well as in the Rotunda of the Capitol Building in Washington and the Governors' Offices of Illinois and Pennsylvania.
His teaching is based on the classical drawing curriculum of The French Academy in Paris from the 19th century which aims at visual acuity and a methodical drawing process that delivers results. It promotes a simple and powerful way of constructing a drawing by measuring, applying angles, negative and positive shapes, and the proportionality of shapes, while expressing the rhythm, weight and flow of form. Although this is not an anatomy course per se, as a former instructor of Anatomy for Artists, Lothar will be glad to share his anatomical knowledge of the human figure when the occasion arises.
This workshop is an introduction to this powerful tradition for artists of all levels. Lothar has been teaching the figure for over three decades and delights in adjusting his feedback to each student's level and needs. He considers figure drawing the royal road to learning how to draw anything. The principles learned here are universal and can be applied to any subject matter and develop skill which is the prerequisite for powerful personal artistic expression.
