Life Drawing Sessions

Every Wednesday, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Fee: $10 per night

These sessions are open studio, no instruction is provided.

Each session starts with 15 minutes of one minute gesture drawings, followed by longer poses of 5 to 30 minutes. The first Wednesday of the month will have 10 minutes of one minute gesture drawings followed by one long pose. This will give artists a chance to develop a more finished piece of work and use different media, if desired. The gesture drawings are used as warm-up exercises for both the model and artists. Although charcoal and pencil are the most popular media, artists also use pastels, ink and water media.

    Learn to build up layers of color with glazes to create shadows and still retain vibrant colors. Glazes produce translucence, interesting textures and vibrant blended colors. Success comes from mixing compatible colors and making the right choices.

    Artists do not need many different tubes of paint when they know how to use a limited palette. In this class we will learn to mix colors and use them to create harmony, drama and depth in our paintings. We will work on color charts to see how colors behave and put our knowledge to use in a completed painting. Beginner and advanced painters who want to understand how to use their paints will benefit from this class. This class is open to watercolor and acrylic painters.
