Expressive life drawing w/local artist (and NYC Designer) Floyd Rappy

Workshop Size: 8

Registration Closes: Monday, April 9th

Floyd has been drawing since he was a young child growing up in Brooklyn. He attended School of Visual Arts on a full-tuition scholarship, studying illustration. After graduating in 1985, he worked as an illustrator and calligrapher while continuing his fine art studies at The Art Students League and The New School. After a short time, he became acutely aware of his love for design and opened the doors to his design firm, Rappy & Company, with clients like HBO and PanAm. He continues to serve corporate clients today.

He has taught drawing, painting, and calligraphy at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, NY and also served as an Adjunct Professor at NYU teaching an advanced class in marketing design. 

At his art studio in Northern Westchester, Floyd keeps a regular schedule of painting and life drawing.

Learn to draw the human form with the goal of creating lively, expressive drawings from nude models. 3 hours of drawing, small class size with individual attention. Poses will be relatively short, to focus on capturing the gesture of the figure. This class is good for beginners to advanced students. There will be short 5 min. breaks and one long 15 min break. Wine, cheese, and music included.
