Huntsville, AL – The Huntsville Museum of Art is proud to offer a Master Artist Workshop with Brian Bomeisler entitled Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. This intensive class, is designed for individuals with little or no prior drawing training and perhaps believe that learning to draw well is only possible for those lucky people with “inborn talent,” is scheduled for April 22-26, 2013, in the Museum Academy classrooms overlooking Big Spring International Park.

 It has been proven that the global skill of drawing any perceived object, person or place requires five basic component perceptual skills – edges, spaces, relationships, lights and shadows. Each skill is learned and merged with the others until you are simply drawing – just as you found yourself simply driving or reading.
Bomeisler received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute Brooklyn, New York in 1975, and has been a working and showing artist since then.  He lives and works in Soho, New York City. In 1985 he received a Fellowship from the NEA and has paintings in collections at The Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla, The Hyde Collection, New York and corporate and private collections around the world. Bomeisler taught alongside his mother, Betty Edwards, since 1988 and since her retirement in 1998. Since then he has been leading the drawing and painting workshops worldwide. He has also been an instructor at the New York Academy of Art for a number of years. Bomeisler’s illustrations appear alongside the text in The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. For more information about Bomeisler, visit drawright.com.
