Foundations of Drawing and Painting
July 5th - July 8th July 11th - July 15th
9:00am to 3:00pm
Recommended for ages 15 and older
This two-week class is a great portfolio-builder class that introduces the foundations of both drawing and painting, and is designed for the beginner as well as for the already accomplished artist. The first week will focus on the fundamentals of drawing through a series of projects about line, value, texture, and composition, and learning how to truly “see,” and will culminate with the creation of a large photorealistic grid self-portrait in graphite. The second week will take those principles of drawing into painting in oils, with an introduction to color theory and color mixing through the creation of an abstract work, and finishing with a final painting from direct observation, with a choice of portraiture, still-life, or plein-air landscape as subject. Materials Provided.
