Learn to capture the essence of the figure in this comprehensive 4 week workshop.

Using both photo references and live models, you’ll discover techniques for creating accurate proportion and form, as well a sense of movement and energy. 

You’ll learn to compose your figure in its environment using a shape-based approach that focuses on what your painting needs rather than what the photo contains.  This approach will help you tackle the conundrum of “what to do with the background?”and teach you how to weave the figure into its environment in a painterly way.

Figure painting is a joyful process.  We’ll address it with a logical methodology and a playful spirit.
