During the Italian Renaissance artists made drawings on paper using combinations of red, black and white chalk and ink to make studies of the human form in preparation for their painting compositions. Sensitivity to proportion, form, line and surface were of great importance in these preparatory studies. This class will assist in helping to describe the anatomical form of the human head, including bone structure, muscles, skin tone and hair by referencing historical techniques. We will study the relationship of the head, neck, and shoulders and also attempt to capture a range of facial expressions in numerous quick sketches and drawings in Conté crayon and ink wash, (plus experiments with graphite and charcoal), on white and toned papers to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of portraiture.
+ Life model fee will be required for 3 out of the 4 sessions and will be split equally among students.

This class is for all who want to acquire a strong foundation in watercolor painting while expanding their creativity through exploration of the medium. There will be an emphasis on color, composition and personal expression as we paint from direct observation as well as from imagination and memory. The instructor will demonstrate a variety of techniques including brushwork, flat and graded washes, glazing and blending techniques, and color mixing. A series of painting exercises will allow students to experiment as they gain skills for working in this luminous and spontaneous medium.
