 This is a twelve-week progressive course designed to strengthen figure drawing skills and introduce oil painting materials and paint handling techniques. Using demonstrations, targeted exercises and individual attention, we’ll use oils to review the components of strong drawing skills for the first two classes, then we will paint for the rest of the course.

Because a strong figure painting is built on a strong drawing!

This course is appropriate for novice to intermediate skill levels. The course will stress observational skills and construction, rendering anatomy, and composition. We’ll explore how drawing relates to painting, color and value, the effects of light and shadow, tonal methods, various modeling techniques, and how to manage a palette and mix colors.

• Drop in students are welcome.
