Tickets Starting at: $1090

Instructor: Brett X. Gamache
Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm | June 6 – 10

This week-long figure painting course focuses on simplification of the human figure from direct observation, both in terms of color and form. Topics covered include value and temperature studies, demystifying skin tones through color mixing exercises, basic anatomy, along with how to capture light and build form. Historical and contemporary figure paintings will be presented, live demonstrations will be provided. We will work directly from the nude model each day. A variety of standing, seated and reclining poses will be covered throughout the week. Some painting experience is preferred. Oil painting is the preferred medium.

*this course may be taken for 1.5 credits; additional fees, pre-requisites, and requirements apply. Please contact the Continuing Education Office first to confirm eligibility before registering for credit. Montserrat Students should register via campus cafe.
