Thursday mornings. Life Drawing and Painting: FIgure and Portraiture
.9:30 to 12:30
If you can learn to draw the face or the figure, you can draw anything in the world!
.Working from a live model, coursework in this five-week class will be evenly divided between portrait and figure. With instruction in both drawing and painting, students will develop observational skills, learning to see value, edges and negative space. A limited palette will be used to explore color, as students gain knowledge and confidence in color-mixing and brushwork. Working with vine charcoal, instruction will emphasize how to capture a likeness both accurately and abstractly.
.This class is open to all levels of experience. Beginners are welcome and will receive plenty of individualized instruction at the easel.
