About this course:

This course is for students who have taken a figure drawing and beginning painting class (acrylics or oils). It focuses on the fundamentals of figure painting: finding movement, form, proportions, and the anatomy of the figure and imbue it with the liveliness, light, and atmosphere that only painting can give. Instruction covers the use of monochrome, grisaille and full color palettes, and the relative color mixing and brushing techniques. Working directly from models, the course begins with quick painting sketches and progressively moves on to more challenging exercises with longer alla prima poses and culminating in a multi-session pose for a finished painting. The instructor will encourage students to develop their own expressive interests.
