Mastering the Figure in Paint

Instructor: Diane Wilson

Wednesdays, 2-5pm

 

While strengthening perceptual and technical skills, this course will investigate the materials, expressive content and visual concepts of painting as they relate to the human form. Students work towards a personal sensibility, while learning to express the complexities of the human form in its spatial environment. Concepts to be addressed include:

  • Gesture of the pose, 
  • proportion, 
  • skeletal structure, 
  • planar structure, 
  • limited palette color,
  • and placement within the rectangle. 

 

While the emphasis is on oil painting with a limited palette, those who wish to draw from an extended pose may do so in this class.

 

Who is this class for: This class is for those who have some previous life drawing experience, some basic painting skills, who enjoy a less structured classroom environment and who have a particular interest in painting the unclothed figure.
