Kevin Müller Cisneros wins first GCA Structure Prix

This new prize is awarded at the end of each session of the weekly Wednesday Structure Figure Drawing class in our full-time program. The pose averages 20 hours and students are instructed on anatomy, proportion and form. Inspired by the cash awards given to the best student drawing every week to encourage healthy competition among peers at the Academy Julien in Paris during the 19th Century. The Structure Prix winner receives $200. 

"This drawing displays a very honest and sensitive handling. Kevin accurately represents the gesture and proportional system of the model and in doing so, the drawing feels natural and truthful. The varied lines of the contours and the subtle form rendering work together to create a feeling of solid tonal mass, clear anatomical moments and even a bit of atmosphere." Critique by instructor Colleen Barry.
