Students will study the figure and express their findings via the direct medium of watercolor on paper. A limited palette (single color) will be used initially to enable the student to focus on value relationships, edge statements, and transitional form passages. Students will work on each pose for 3 hours. Instructor will perform both ‘audienced demonstrations‚Äô as well as ‘working demonstrations’ throughout the duration of the course. This exercise introduces the student to a medium they can use to perform studies for proposed compositions inside and outside of the curriculum as well as to use it as an end game in and of itself.
The Portrait Classes run for 8 weeks, from 1-4pm or 6-9pm on Tuesdays.
