9:30 am - 12:30 pm  IN-PERSON

Learn the essential steps to bring a figure drawing to a high level of completion. This course will enable concentrated focus on the figure. Each week, emphasis is placed on careful observation of gesture, proportion, anatomical structure, line quality, and composition. As your drawing progresses, the focus will shift to components of creating a three-dimensional form, which includes rendering light and shadow, subtle tonal gradations, value, and personal mark-making.

Model fees are extra.

ONLINE-The online class is taught via the Zoom digital platform. It includes lectures on technique, discussions of historic and contemporary masterworks of art to support the lesson, and instructor demonstrations. Extensive prepared notes are available on the class website, recordings, and a student gallery.  Private and group critiques of students' work will occur during the last hour of class.

FALL 2023

EXPRESSIVE WATERCOLOR:  

Monday, September 18th / 9 weeks

9:30-12:30 pm ( In-person )

In this class, gain confidence and capture your interests in loose, vibrant, and expressive watercolor, clearly understanding what makes watercolor unique. This summer focus will encompass larger, loose watercolors and how to plan a more involved painting. Using nature, landscape, and the human figure, students will explore the expressive character of painting with watercolor in the plein air setting. Embrace the magical qualities of watercolor, creating fresh, vital, and alive works of art while honing your brush and paint control to create luminous mixes and subtle nuances. The finished piece will be a record of that journey. 

This class will be using the platform Zoom.
