Composition: Figure Outdoors Spring 2019

Apr 19, 2019 – Jun 21, 2019

6 Fridays 10am – 2pm

This class will focus on the figure outdoors. We will meet at the atelier and at Blake Garden in the Berkeley hills. You will have the opportunity to paint the model from life, to copy a master painting, and to practice composition sketches at home. Through this study, you will begin to understand how the various elements of a successful composition – line, value, and color – can contribute to your artistic vision.

Lectures on shape arrangement, value orchestration, and color will be offered. Each student will receive individual instruction by Sean Forester. Some experience in drawing and painting is recommended.

Fridays 10am – 2pm
