Drawing & Painting Classes by HENRY VERMILLION
Henry Vermillion teaches drawing ("Expressive Drawing") from January through April and June through October at the studio / classroom at Mesones 14 (rear) in San Miguel de Allende. The classes are structured for both beginners and practicing artists, and stress fundamentals (many art schools in the 60's - 80's put little emphasis on fundamental skills, especially drawing).
In drawing, the live model is generally used. He teaches how to see as an artist sees, finding and simplifying forms and how to use contour and gesture. Each person is given individual attention and often, individual assignments, according to their aptitudes and needs.
Since visitors to San Miguel have varying lengths of stay, the drawing classes are structured in two-week segments (though drop-in classes can also be arranged). Cost per class is $250 pesos (about $20 US), with a 10% discount for advance payment for two weeks. Classes are normally Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 2 to 5 pm. The classes are structured, but the atmosphere is relaxed and there are tea/coffee breaks and treats. Class size is limited to 10.
If there is sufficient interest, watercolor and oil painting classes may be held.
Commissioned portraits are also welcome.
In addition, at his house each Tuesday from 7 to 9 pm, Henry has an open life drawing session with a live model; no instruction. The cost is $70 pesos. This Tuesday session is a tradition going back more than 25 years.
