CLASS DESCRIPTION

Mixing believable, workable skin tones is a skill that many painters strive for. Because most portrait painters rely heavily upon value (not color) to set up the composition and likeness, the use of earth colors is often seen as easiest and quickest, but when you do it this way, the excitement and expression of color can be lost. This class will concentrate on color in portraiture. Each class session includes one long pose. This format will allow students to work toward finishing studies.

Bring a notebook and the colors you have. We will look at what you will need to add to them so that your selection has the best possible color relationships. In this class we will focus on the head, but the whole clothed model is available for drawing and painting. Model poses for two consecutive weeks.

If you are not sure about your subject matter, I will provide help and advice, so no worries there! This class is an Open Studio setting with instructor providing one-on-one instruction for all levels. *Note: Watercolorists are welcome in this class; however, no technique will be offered; color theory only.

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Art begins with drawing. Whether you sculpt, paint, etch, or construct your artwork, it usually starts with a concept drawing or idea sketch. Our ability to communicate in the visual medium relies heavily on our ability to “speak” the visual language of draftsmanship. To do this, we must train our eye, our mind, and our hand to work together to create the illusion of three-dimensional objects in space on a two-dimensional surface. This class will train you in fundamental principles of representational drawing, developing your ability to see, measure, and reproduce both positive and negative shape relationships and to render them to depict light on form.

This is a painting studio with a little twist. This class could free your thinking and influence your ways of beginning and/or completing a painting. Students will continue to bring their own paintings to work on during the majority of the class. However, mini-lessons will focus on the comparison of the Eastern versus Western styles of painting: the techniques and compositions, as well as the difference in execution before, during, and after completion of a painting. This class will offer demonstrations and hands-on experience including the six paint strokes of Chinese Free Brush as well as Double and Triple Loading the Brush. This class will provide (to those interested) an expansion in their knowledge of painting techniques found in the East. However, this class will not substitute what you are doing on your own. You are expected to bring your own projects. Over the Course of Instruction: • Students have the option of working on paintings at home and bringing them in for further critique. The number of paintings completed is up to each individual student.

Because most portrait painters rely heavily upon value (not color) to set up the composition and likeness, the use of earth colors is often seen as easiest and quickest, but when you do it this way, the excitement and expression of color can be lost. This class will concentrate on color in portraiture. Each class session includes one long pose. This format will allow students to work toward finishing studies.

Bring a notebook and the colors you have. We will look at what you will need to add to them so that your selection has the best possible color relationships. In this class we will focus on the head, but the whole clothed model is available for drawing and painting. Model poses for two consecutive weeks.

If you are not sure about your subject matter, I will provide help and advice, so no worries there! This class is an Open Studio setting with instructor providing one-on-one instruction for all levels. *Note: Watercolorists are welcome in this class; however, no technique will be offered; color theory only.

**Students can do charcoal and/or pastel.

The dramatic, rich markings of charcoal first appeared in caves; it is known to be the oldest medium ever. Charcoal is by far the most forgiving medium for beginners, allowing students to easily learn shading, gradation, value, and blending, and it is easily erasable.
Pastels are the only dry painting medium. Pastels come either in compressed form or very creamy, and they can be applied to a variety of surfaces. Learn how to apply pastels loosely with wild expression or tightly to show the finest detail.

Charcoal Supply List: *2-5 sheets of Canson paper, light gray colors, light flesh colors, or light blues, pinks, creams…no white, no black, no deep colors. (Available at Hobby Lobby; Michael’s no longer carries full sheets.
*Foam board, large enough to fit a full piece of Canson paper OR a large drawing board with clips.
*Vine or willow charcoal sticks
*General’s charcoal pencils (comes in a pack of three or four, including the white (you’ll want to get that), and usually it has a kneaded eraser, too.
*Tortillion sticks or blending stumps
*Krylon Workable Fixatif
*Napkins, painter’s or masking tape, hand sanitizer (small)
PASTEL SUPPLY LIST: *Dick Blick’s “Rembrandt” set of 15 half sticks – currently $26.16. Be sure to buy soft pastels, not oil pastels!

Watercolor in 3D is a whole new way of approaching paint and paper! To make a 3D watercolor painting, first paint an abstract or realistic watercolor painting on paper, then make a photocopy of it.

Add embellishments, if desired, such as puffed paint, buttons, crystals, artificial or dried flowers, wooden objects, etc. to add even more depth. You’ll never look at a painting the same way again!

Mixing believable, workable skin tones is a skill that many painters strive for. Because most portrait painters rely heavily upon value (not color) to set up the composition and likeness, the use of earth colors is often seen as easiest and quickest, but when you do it this way, the excitement and expression of color can be lost. This class will concentrate on color in portraiture. Each class session includes one long pose. This format will allow students to work toward finishing studies.

Bring a notebook and the colors you have. We will look at what you will need to add to them so that your selection has the best possible color relationships. In this class we will focus on the head, but the whole clothed model is available for drawing and painting. Model poses for two consecutive weeks.

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Art begins with drawing. Whether you sculpt, paint, etch, or construct your artwork, it usually starts with a concept drawing or idea sketch. Our ability to communicate in the visual medium relies heavily on our ability to “speak” the visual language of draftsmanship. To do this, we must train our eye, our mind, and our hand to work together to create the illusion of three-dimensional objects in space on a two-dimensional surface. This class will train you in fundamental principles of representational drawing, developing your ability to see, measure, and reproduce both positive and negative shape relationships and to render them to depict light on form.
