Head To Toe Drawing Workshop
This event has already happened.
10 a.m.-5 p.m.
instructor: Timur Akhriev
This two-day workshop will concentrate on drawing sometimes the most difficult things–the head, hands and feet. Drawing these parts of the human body is essential and probably most challenging as they are very complicated anatomically. Being a good draftsman with anatomy takes a lot of practice and will help your drawings as well as your paintings of the figure and portrait. Timur will lead students through how to draw the anatomical and aesthetic structure, and the Russian Academy method of developing form, using tone and strokes over the anatomical detail. Students will draw from a live clothed model. Class fee covers model fees.
All levels are welcome!
Born in Vladikavkaz, the territory where Southern Russia meets Chechnya in 1983, Timur lived with his family until moving from the region during the conflict of 1991. After moving to St. Petersburg Timur began attending the St. Petersburg Iagonson Fine Art School at the age of twelve, where many of the professors studied at the Repin Academy of Fine Arts. While living in Russia Timur also received private tutoring from Nikita Fomin, son of Piotr Fomin.
After graduation, Timur immigrated to Chattanooga Tennessee to live with his father, Daud Akhriev and stepmother Melissa Hefferlin, who are also Russian trained artists. In Chattanooga, Timur attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga studying in the Fine Arts program. In 2005 to further his education Timur moved to Florence Italy to study at the Florence Academy of Art and Charles Cecil Studios of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture for two years. Today, Timur splits his time between the US and Europe. He is skilled in painting all genres of work.
