Figure Painting (for ages 18+)

This figure painting class will allow participating artists to work expressively with painting one nude figure model for five weeks. In the first class, we will examine the form through gesture drawings. Once we have adequately captured gestural movements in the figure, we will then more closely consider the angles and measurements of the body. In the classes
proceeding, when we feel confident in our siting and measuring of the body, we will
place the figure on a canvas and begin the oil painting process.  The objective in the class is to accurately represent a nude figure on a large canvas.  The body can be seen and drawn in different ways and the class will touch the surface on many of those methods.

Experience the fun, expressive and experimental media while learning new ways to work from the body with Portland based artist, Sagan Newham.
