NEW! Painting the Portrait in Oils

Lauren Rudolph $360/senior $340

In this class, we will learn how to paint a portrait in oils from a reference photo. Starting with the initial sketch we will learn how to break down the face into patterns and shapes in order to see the areas of light and dark create form. We will learn how to create an underpainting using one color to create darks and lights as our foundation. We will learn how to mix colors ahead of time to use for our flesh tones. We will discuss how to apply color and see them for what they are and how to create a dynamic, life-like feeling.

A list of all materials will be sent upon registration.

Registration for this class begins Tuesday, November 15 at 10:00am.

NEW! Painting the Portrait in Oils

Lauren Rudolph  $360/senior $340

In this class, we will learn how to paint a portrait in oils from a reference photo. Starting with the initial sketch we will learn how to break down the face into patterns and shapes in order to see the areas of light and dark that create form. In this first step, we will see how we can paint with pencil using the same principles that we will then bring in with paint.  The underpainting is a scaffold upon which we will lay our colors. The underpainting creates a visual structure and another layer from which we can get to know the subject. We will learn how to create an underpainting using one color to create darks and lights as our foundation. In the final stages we will be adding paint. We will learn how to mix colors ahead of time to use for our flesh tones. The world of color is fascinating and there is so much to explore. We will discuss how to apply color and see them for what they are and how to create a dynamic, life-like feeling. 

A list of all materials will be sent upon registration.
