Course description

Students will develop their ability to work mostly from still lifes and with the help of photographic references.

We will use a variety of techniques and tools to develop your perception of the shapes, proportions, values ​​and colours that are the foundation of painting. Most techniques are applicable to oil and acrylic paint.

All students will follow a personal path and choose the subjects that interest them and which will provide a better structure for their artistic development.

Prerequisites

None. Students without drawing experience will be able to develop their eye by doing mass studies, using grids or wipe-outs.

For beginners, we recommend to start with simple forms in monochrome paint and to progress toward more complicated subjects using a limited palette in order to develop a good control of values.

Materials

We provide the easel and the pleasant atmosphere!
Please bring your paint (titanium white and the three primaries, red, blue and yellow), towels or rags, 2 palette knives, canvas, a few brushes, 12x16 palette paper. For acrylic, also bring retarder medium. For oil paint, also bring linseed oil, odourless solvent and small containers for oil and solvent.
