Promotional Information

Figure Drawing Atelier offers a comprehensive, contemporary twist to the very traditional Atelier approach to the methods that instruct artists on the techniques they need to successfully draw and ultimately paint the figure. The book offers art instruction, practical and progressive lessons on drawing the figure, and high-quality, sketchbook paper in a beautiful package that includes blank pages for sketching and copying. Artists will then have a record of their process, like with a sketchbook, which many artists like to document and save.

Reviews

"Once again, Juliette Aristides proves how gifted she is, not only as a draftsman, but also as a cogent communicator of complex information. The close, living connection between past and present is apparent in her art and her teaching: what a rare pleasure, for example, to admire a historical master such as Michelangelo alongside a contemporary one like Steven Assael! Aristides generously helps her readers-even those of us who do not draw - see and appreciate the excellence in every era."
-Peter Trippi, editor-in-chief, Fine Art Connoisseur magazine, New York


"Aristides, a true giant of art instruction books, advances the field once again with Figure Drawing Atelier. At last we have a volume that connects the transitions of constructive drawing with optical approaches in an elegant and comprehensive way. The synthesis is powerful and is sure to empower generations of artists to realize their creative potential."
-Joshua Jacobo, founder and CEO of New Masters Academy


"Juliette Aristides's new book, Figure Drawing Atelier, beautifully presents the most important aspects of classical life drawing in a simple and straightforward manner. Every figurative artist, no matter his or her skill level, should have this book on their studio shelf."
-Jon deMartin, artist and author of Drawing Atelier
