This problem-solving mindset is central to the school. The technique and theory that we present is universally applicable to all styles and media – whatever your subject matter or materials of choice, your drawing will improve and you will become more confident in your work.

Figure Block-in Workshop
June 17 – 21, 10:30 – 4:30
This class will present a concrete process for creating accurate figure drawings. Students will learn to draw with purpose, problem solve and make confident decisions while developing a set of tools for evaluating and correcting their work.
Figure Painting Workshop
June 24 – 28, 10:00 – 4:30
In this class students will learn how to create a convincing illusion of three dimensional forms in paint. This class will cover the block-in, setting up your palette, how to do an oil transfer, a one day color study, and modeling form in paint. Students may choose to model in graphite instead of painting.
These two figure workshops are designed to be taken as a pair or individually; the pose will remain the same for both workshops, allowing students from the first week to begin painting or modeling on the first day of this workshop.
Both workshops are suitable for all skill levels. We do recommend that students who are not confident in their drawing abilities take the Block-in Workshop in conjunction with the Painting Workshop. Please check here for a list of Painting Materials.
Cast Drawing Intensive
Weekdays, 10:00 – 4:30
Session 1: June 3 through 14

Cast drawing is a centuries old, proven practice that builds a strong skill set for accurate 2-D drawing, and was considered foundational training for all realist artists prior to the 20th century. Whether you are an absolute beginner or an experienced artist looking to hone your drawing skills, our cast drawing class will teach you a powerful step-by-step procedure for artistic problem solving. You will draw from plaster casts of classical sculpture, learning how to see shapes accurately, create a truthful drawing, and render with a high degree of fidelity. Each two-week session covers sixty hours of study. Click here for a list of required materials. All skill levels welcome.
Weekdays, 10:00 – 4:30
June 3 – 28
Students taking the Month-Long Intensive will receive individualized instruction through a custom course of study that targets their artistic goals. This course will cover all of Cambridge Street Studio’s technique and theory, including block-ins, modeling in graphite, color studies, and modeling in paint. Students will apply the skills they learn from Bargue copies and cast drawing toward two weeks of working with the figure. Students taking this course will leave with an array of powerful drawing techniques and problem solving skills that are applicable across all styles and media.
