Adult – 2-Day Painting Workshop with Artist Nancy Franke – “Gesture & Feeling / Painting Studies of the Figure”
August 20 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until August 21, 2020
Any subject can be broken down into simple shapes. We will learn to see as painters, first by doing some quick studies from simple still life objects. Translating this understanding to painting the figure from photos will then be our focus, rather than creating detailed portraits, or rendering photographic images. Tips for simplifying the subject, while communicating gesture and feeling will be emphasized. We want to catch the truth in a light and effective way! A live model session will be offered on the second morning. Nancy will do demos each day and give lots of personal instruction. Bring big brushes, lots of paint, and expect to do 2 – 3 studies each day, as we experiment and have fun in a non-judgmental setting. Register
