ABOUT THIS CLASS
The focus of this class is building foundation skills and finished work for your portfolio. Students will develop a series of finished works in a variety of media. The class structure reflects an Academic approach of learning covering such core concepts as gesture, contour, and value developed through modeling, foreshortening, form construction, composition and color theory. These concepts will be introduced through short lectures with demonstrations and reinforced with visual references. After introducing the concepts to be covered the Instructor will work one on one with the students and the class as a whole.
Students will work from the human form, landscape and still life objects. Exercises will focus on drawing and painting in graphite, charcoal, ink and gouache and will last for two weeks.
This class is ideal for the beginner and advanced student and all are encouraged to pre-register.
