Studio 2

Learn to create unique and personal paintings while working from a live model. This class engages students in a studio practice that explores the technical and theoretical creation of works of art. There will be a mixed focus on portraiture and nude figure painting throughout the semester. The course will progress from observation and analysis of painting the live model, to the integration of imagination and personal expression into your work. Students will be encouraged to utilize composition, color, cropping, and context to develop their own visual language in their work. Classes will include demonstrations, discussions and individual instruction at the easel. Discussions and handout s will cover the stages to developing a painting, comparative measuring, proportion, and structure, as well as appropriation and the use of photography as reference material. Open to all levels.
