Our ongoing Painting/Drawing classes held on Fridays- 1,000/semester/12weeks
The Portrait in an Aesthetic Environment with Teresa Oaxaca
January 26-29th, 2018 from 9:00-4:00 at the studio in Waltham
$595, model fees included
Teresa Oaxaca’s guest courses in the studio have been jam-packed with information and anecdotes, and her own strategies for dealing with pictorial issues. Click here to read about Teresa’s last class on Alla Prima portraiture,and her previous class on Charcoal Drawing here.
For Teresa’s next course in the studio we wanted to offer something more involved- to study not just the portrait but how to arrange and select compositional elements, to arrive at a personal design, over a sustained long pose.
This will give students a variety of opportunities across the pose- to study the portrait and draped figure in depth, or to arrange, pick and choose still life elements to set off the painting.
Students will be able to work in paint and/or charcoal, and work either on a small or larger scale.
Figure Construction with Ben Fenske
-March 3rd to 7th 2018, mornings and afternoons-
Improve your figure work, whether you’re just starting out or have been at the easel for years.
Ben’s techniques for simplifying and memorizing visual cues on the figure will help you to work efficiently, accurately and simply. Students can expect:
As with Ben’s other classes over the years, this will be a huge amount of information distilled from his studies- anatomy, plane memorization and modeling techniques, methods for crosshatching to indicate form, and of course, proper proportion measurement methods.
