An exciting course designed for artists who enjoy drawing the figure and are ready to explore daring approaches in mark-making. Mark Eanes has developed numerous exercises to help artists stretch, take risks, and surprise themselves in discovering the power of intuition in drawing the figure. This three-day workshop will focus primarily on shorter poses in order to allow students to experiment with various tools, techniques and strategies, generating many drawings in the process. The emphasis will be on pushing personal boundaries and discovering the potential for a more expressive voice.


MARK EANES is a painter, printmaker, photographer, curator, and educator who has spent the last 25 years living and working in Benicia, California. Mark is currently an Associate Professor at California College of the Arts (CCA), where he has taught for over 29 years. Eanes has shown his paintings throughout California as well as nationally and internationally. His past solo and selected exhibitions include the Parsons School of Design in Paris; the Applied Arts Museum in Belgrade, Serbia; the Cumberland Gallery in Nashville, Tennessee; the Documenta Galeria de Arte in San Paulo, Brazil; and more locally, the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, CA; the Pence Gallery in Davis, CA; and the Hanford Center for the Arts, the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, and the San Francisco Center for the Book.
