Painting from the Life Model

In this course students will delve into painting directly from the life model. There will be a nude life model at each session, and students will experiment with various approaches to figure painting. Some basic painting experience is recommended.


We will use a range of materials in the course, including acrylic and oil paint, painting on carboard, paper and canvas. The first two days we will focus on a series of quick "sketches" with paint to experiment and get comfortable with the process of painting from a model. The last two days the model will hold 1 long pose so students can develop a more finished painting during the final two sessions.

By the end of the course, students will have a collection of quicker gestrual paintings on a variety of surfaces, and 1 more developed painting.
