The class will paint from a live model for a four-consecutive day period. It is not a how-to class, rather it will be a space to ask “what if..?” It will not be presented in academic light – rather about gaining experience with guidance from an instructor. During the four mornings, students will have ample time to explore painting the figure through various types of prompts that may be born of spontaneity or have very strict parameters. The objectives may be strictly formal or may involve a limited palette or limited time constraints.

General materials are basic oil or acrylic colors. (no special palette required) And supports such as paper for shorter exercises and canvases.
