Advanced and Intermediate Figure Painting

Want to develop your painting style and increase your skill set? This class will explore several advanced painting techniques while focusing on a single life-size pose for the entirety of the course. Learn to understand and use multiple painting surfaces, under paintings, glazing, and painting to enhance light. You can expect instructor demonstrations and plenty of individual instruction and feedback.

An understanding of painting fundamentals is strongly recommended.
