This class is open to students at all levels. For beginners, I often recommend starting with drawing. Although we will be working from a partially clothed live model, I can provide assistance and instruction to those students that have it in mind to work from their own original photographs.
An underlying theme throughout the journey of artistic development in this class is an exploration of techniques involving careful observation. Initially, I will introduce progressively challenging exercises based on direct observation and understanding of the forms of the model in light.
From basic fundamentals, such as the structure of the body, the use of the brush, and the first steps in the development of a keen aesthetic judgement, to portraiture that involves seeing through an eye that can perceive forms simplified, and finally to meaningful, thought provoking, and hopefully visually stunning multi-figure compositions.
