Figure drawing for all skill levels!  Action poses, the anatomy of the body, and the figure in perspective. Students will advance in their understanding and sensitivity to the human form.  Students with basic, intermediate and advanced drawing skills learn step-by-step how to draw a realistic figure.  We will explore classical approaches and compare them to modern, neo views of the figure.  Students will try new ways of looking at and describing an immortal image through hands-on instruction exploring different dry and wet media as well as color.  We encourage individual multimedia.  Simple as well as more complex unexpected poses inspire new perspectives in viewing the figure.  We will analyze well-known modern and past masters for their skills and insights into the human form.  Model fee extra and collectable at the first class:  more students, lower model fees.  Arrive with tools and enthusiasm; model at first class!

Students need to have a drawing background.  No late entries after first class.  Begin with the basics, a monochromatic painting of a still life, then introduce a burst of color. Next, explore color basics and classic color palettes of famous painters from Rembrandt to Picasso and Warhol. After that, pick your own subject and learn how to design your artwork to its best advantage using the golden mean or breaking the boundaries.  Short 10-minute explorations of classic and modern design approaches will help students develop their own eye and style.
Finally, learn classic oil painting approaches, basic washes, lean to fat, impasto, and stabile glazing techniques.

Supply list:
·         Canvas  16”x20”
·         Oil paints:  basic set of 10-12, including Titanium White, Ivory Black, Payne’s Gray
·         Bristle or stiff synthetic brushes, palette knife
·         Vine Charcoal and H, 2B, 6B pencils
·         Sketch book big enough to make notes of experiments
