Course Description: This course will be a fun, relaxing yet in-depth introduction to the history and methods of watercolor painting. The information will be gathered through lectures, group discussions, research and studio work. Specific topics covered will be; pigment, brush and surface selection, color mixing and color theory, traditional vs. non-traditional techniques and setting up your working space for studio and outdoor painting. Exploration through developing a working strategy for the chosen subject to be painted will be a focus. Subject matter and assignments will include still life, plein air (outdoor landscape) and cityscape. Personal and group critiques, presentations of relevant artists, demonstrations, ample one-on-one time from the instructor and outdoor painting excursions (weather permitting) are included.

Portrait Painting from Life

 

Watercolor for all Skill Levels

 

Course Description: Students begin with the structure and proportions of the human head and face then review basic facial features and expressions. Next, the course will cover different methods of “blocking in” and underpainting to establish an accurate likeness and sense of character. The later part of the course will focus on color temperatures, value accuracy, and edge control to bring emotion and narrative content to your portrait work. Students will work in oil paint (and watercolor if so desired) and will have live models, skeletons, plaster casts, and anatomy charts to reference in every session. Personal and group critiques, presentations of relevant artists, demonstrations and ample one-on-one time from the instructor are included given the small group size.
