Students will work from the figure while exploring anatomical, design, and painting concepts and techniques. While interpreting the human form, we will strive to bring individual creativity, visual problem solving, and craftsmanship into accord with our artistic vision. This course is great for re-honing skills after a long hiatus, or for those who wish to continue or begin working with the figure through oil painting. In addition, the class will introduce a variety of historical and contemporary artists for discussion. Open to beginning to advanced painters; basic drawing ability is required and figure drawing experience preferred.
A materials list is available through the office. Oil paints for use in class can be provided for an optional materials fee of $20.
