When Gertrude Stein first saw Picasso's portrait of her she said "It doesn't look like me." Picasso replied, "Oh, it will." That portrait eventually became her favorite, but most of us would prefer our painting closely resembled the sitter. Working from a live model in a limited palette of oil colors, we will discuss anatomy, proportions, temperature, values and other keys to capturing the likeness of a sitter. All skill levels are welcome. Ages 16+.

Renaissance artists believed a careful study of the human form was the best way to learn to draw. Master the figure, and you could draw most anything. With some knowledge of anatomy, and the trained eye of an instructor to assist you as you practice, your figure drawings can become more accurate. In this course we will work in pencil from the nude model, focusing on gesture, proportion, contour and shadow shape. All skill levels are welcome. Ages 18+.
