Blackridge Artists

In this 4-day workshop, Philadelphia-based artist Arcenio Martin Campos will challenge the artist to push artistic boundaries with how one sees the human figure.


Working directly from observation or photo reference of the model and at a quick pace, students will understand how to use memory and speed to the best advantage in their work. 


Single figure studies and figure space compositions will be explored depending on on the individual goals of each student.


The core of Campos' work revolves around the figure - directly observed - and as a point of departure for narratives. With years of solid training in observation and constant drawing, Martin has created a fluid and symbolic relationship with the model as muse. He hopes that with this workshop, he can impart this knowledge to you.
