Life Drawing Classes at Art.Lab Taught by Featured Artist: Richard White

IMG_1130Richard White’s drawings are featured in the current exhibition on display at Art.Lab. Richard’s figure studies are beautifully rendered examples of his natural ability to elegantly capture reality. Richard’s blatant technical dexterity is deliberately subtle but undeniably informed.

A painter and illustrator, Richard’s work is figurative in the tradition of representational painting and portraiture. He also has many years of experience teaching drawing, fashion illustration, computer graphics and photography in area colleges and with private students.

Richard received the MFA at the University of Buffalo and is a member of the Lyme Art Association, Open Studios of Eastern CT and the Portrait Society of America and has attended The Representational Artist Conference in Ventura, California since its inception in 2012.
