Centered around painting the figure from life, this class is a visual laboratory aimed at improving our ability to paint, see, and harness inspiration from the world around and inside us. The course will begin by covering tried and true foundational methods of painting — as we practice things like drawing the figure in proportion and mixing color –and gradually introduce more contemporary ideas and approaches. Through demonstrations, in-class exercises, readings, and an underlying spirit of playful experimentation, students will ultimately develop a more personal working process, strategies for “catching” ideas and inspiration, and an improved ability to weave together visually rich and impactful compositions.
Painting Surface: You may bring in and use any canvas/panels sitting around. We prefer smooth wood panels such as Ampersand Gessobord sizes 12×16 and up. Fredericks Canvas pads also work. We will need 7 surfaces.
Brushes: An assortment of shapes and sizes (use what you’ve got). We recommend having both synthetic and bristle brushes. We prefer to use Trekell, Winsor Newton University series short-handled rounds, or Signet Robert Simmons brushes.
Watercolor and Gouache Paints:(use what you have)
Any basic set of watercolors and Gouache, or tubes or pans, will work; bring whatever you have.
