Focus on the Face and Figure POSTPONED
A chance for beginners as well as those with some experience to spend
time exploring the face and figure in a variety of media. Working from
life and photograph, the session will introduce proportion,
expression, colour, and character. We will look at some of the ways
the human face and figure have been articulated throughout history,
and develop our own style of rendering the body.
Qualicum Beach Old School House
Wednesdays April 8th – May 13th
1pm to 4pm
Fall classes and workshops coming for Denman Island, Qualicum Beach, and Port Alberni!
I love sharing my passion for paint with beginning and intermediate-stage artists in demonstrations, workshops, and ongoing classes. These sessions are can be fun, experimental and playful, or they can more focused and disciplined, depending on the goals and motivation of the group (which is discussed beforehand).
Some subjects I teach are:
- oils (traditional and water-mixable)
- mixed media
- texture and surface (pouring, layering, collage, archival considerations)
- face, figure, and portraiture
- fundamentals of art (composition, colour theory, materials)
Group rates are based on $200 per half-day, plus travel & materials costs where applicable.
