Students attending this class will learn to enhance their practice with instructions on materials, oil, pastel, charcoal, pencil, and watercolor technique. Exercises in live drawing from the model, as well as photographically sourced material intend to inform the process of image making. There will also be a section of the class where art and historic precedents to the work will be referenced and discussed.The emphasis is on generating a final product that has a resolved quality, and one that accesses the inner intent of the artist and his or her untapped skills.
