Please join us for our membership meeting at the Green Acres Center, 4401 Sideburn Road, Fairfax, Virginia. The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. and An Approach to Drawing and Constructing a Figure by artist Atti Vakili Wheeler will commence at 11:30 a.m.
FAL member Atti Vakili Wheeler will share her artistic methods with you as she discusses her approach to sketching the human figure. You may suspect that figure drawing is very difficult, but Atti says it's easier than you think. However, to succeed you must be willing to progress one step at a time to learn simple forms and note every detail of the journey. She advises you to practice with many drawings to make the perfect image.
A creative and accomplished artist, Atti earned a B.F.A. in painting and design in Rome, Italy. As a student she traveled through Europe delving into museums and taking art classes. Over the years Atti has worked with many materials including shells and different processes including oil, acrylic, spray paint, collage and texture.
