Compose the Figure & Master the Gesture
Working from memory, imagination and students’ drawings, this class will focus on composing the figure and understanding how it is constructed. Students will practice making up figures, then adjusting and composing them in groups. There will be constant demonstrations as well as critiques to better understand human anatomy and conceptions of the figure.

Chelsea Classical Studio is a School of Fine Art to learn Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture Based on the Human Figure.
Brandon Soloff is a classically trained painter and portraitist, whose work has been commissioned and exhibited throughout the United States and Europe. An experienced art instructor, he currently lives and works in New York City.
The primary focus of Brandon’s work is people: portraits and nudes. He paints from life; believing a strong rapport with each subject or model is critical for a unique rendering on canvas. He has completed commissioned portraits of several distinguished society, business, collegiate, and political personalities, and his work is on permanent display at several institutions, including: Dartmouth College and Westmont College.
Studying extensively in Italy, France and the United States, Brandon concentrated on drawing and painting with Charles H. Cecil and D. Jeffrey Mims, fresco with Ben Long on the Transamerica Fresco Dome, and sculpture with Martine Vaugel. He spent short stints with other artists and a year at Haverford College. He studied and copied drawings and paintings in the Harvard Fogg Museum, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Uffizi Gallery, the Louvre, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Musée Henner Paris, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
