Coming Soon - Figure Drawing Atelier

In this elegant and inspiring workbook, master contemporary artist and author Juliette Aristides breaks down the figure drawing process into small, manageable lessons; presents them progressively; introduces time-tested principles and techniques in the Atelier tradition that are easily accessible; and shares the language and context necessary to understand the artistic process and create superior, well-crafted drawings. 

Figure Drawing Atelier offers a comprehensive, contemporary twist to the very traditional Atelier approach to the methods that instruct artists on the techniques they need to successfully draw and ultimately paint the figure. The book offers art instruction, practical and progressive lessons on drawing the figure, and high-quality, sketchbook paper in a beautiful package that includes blank pages for sketching and copying. Artists will then have a record of their process, like with a sketchbook, which many artists like to document and save.

"Once again, Juliette Aristides proves how gifted she is, not only as a draftsman, but also as a cogent communicator of complex information. The close, living connection between past and present is apparent in her art and her teaching: what a rare pleasure, for example, to admire a historical master such as Michelangelo alongside a contemporary one like Steven Assael!  Aristides generously helps her readers – even those of us who do not draw – see and appreciate the excellence in every era."  — Peter Trippi, editor-in-chief, Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, New York

“Aristides, a true giant of art educational books advances the format once again with Figure Drawing Atelier. At last we have a volume that connects the transitions of constructive drawing with optical approaches in an elegant and comprehensive way. It’s an exciting time in the world of art as optical and constructive approaches come together deftly in Figure Drawing Atelier. The synthesis is powerful and is sure to empower generations of artists to realize their creative potential.” — Joshua Jacobo, Founder and CEO of New Masters Academy

“Juliette Aristides' new book ‘Figure Drawing Atelier’ beautifully presents the most important aspects of classical life drawing in a simple and straightforward manner.  Every figurative artist, no matter what his or her level should have this book on their studio shelf.” — Jon deMartin author of Drawing Atelier

Praise for Beginning Drawing Atelier: An Instructional Sketchbook

"Delightfully elegant and rational, Beginning Drawing Atelier carries you through the rigors of learning how to draw, like a master, ever so gently. All five books by Juliette Aristides are treasures, but this is perhaps the most engaging and impactful in fostering visual literacy. It is a book to experience. By its last page, you will be left with a poetic sense of the world." —Milène J. Fernández, writer and contributor to theeepochtimes.com

“I have met many thousands of artists over the last fifty years of painting and thirty-five years of making paint. Very rarely do I meet someone who is as good at writing as she is at her visual art. Juliette Aristides is one such person–both a terrific writer and great artist.” —Robert Gamblin, founder of Gamblin Artist Colors

“There are few who know about classical painting like Juliette Aristides. The book is the next best thing to studying with her in person.” B. Eric Rhoads, publisher of Fine Art Connoisseur and PleinAir magazines

”Juliette Aristides, a leader in the revival of classical realism, outlines ways anyone can learn to draw—and why it's imperative for today's society.” —John Burger, writer and reporter, ALETEIA.COM
