EXPRESSIVE FIGURE DRAWING

SUMMER INTENSIVE

SUMMER 2022

Tuesday

9:30am - 12:30 pm ( In-person at the Art League Madison Annex)

2:00pm - 4:30 pm ( Online )

Learn the essential steps to bring a figure drawing to a high level of completion. This course will enable concentrated focus on what captures the life of a pose, along with understanding essential artistic anatomy. 

Each week, emphasis is placed on careful observation of gesture, proportion, anatomical structure, line quality, and composition. As the 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 fee is extra.

EXPRESSIVE WATERCOLOR

PLANNING A PAINTING

SUMMER 2022

Monday

9:30-12:30 pm ( In-person at the Art League )

2:00-4:30 pm ( Online ) 

Have you always wanted to create either a large watercolor, a. commissioned piece, or a well design watercolor painting that is detailed but still holds the freshness and magic of the watercolor medium?

This class will explain a systematic approach that allows for more freedom and looseness to beautifully capture your inspiration without over-working. Understanding how and what to plan dramatically improves your chances of a successful painting which helps to avoid irreversible mistakes like losing the white and flat lifeless color. The instructor demonstrates the step-by-step process, correcting errors, and brush and paint control. A final virtual critique will be held in addition to the 4 class sessions.
