• Intermediate-Advanced
  • Painting

Students will explore observational figure painting through three poses of a clothed model, the pose length will be a three-week, four-week and a five-week pose consecutively. We will discuss proportion, shape, value, light and colour theory, both in reference to the understanding of tertiary colours of skin and also in achieving convincing drapery and fabric. This is a painting course focused primarily on acrylic paint or oil paint. Various methods of application using indirect painting process will be investigated. Whether a more representational or abstracted approach, students will be encouraged to explore various aesthetic styles other than their choosing. An emphasis will be placed on creating volume and depth while exploring the expressive potential of shape and brush treatment and it's relationship to colour and light.

Tuition $475 | Model fee: $95 | Total: $570
