This class is an introduction to principles and techniques in painting the figure and portraits. Emphasis will be on learning to paint what you see through close observation. Additional study of color theory will be explored while working with gouache as a medium. 


This class will cover a wide range of technical, observational and pictorial painting issues, with some exploration of abstraction and an emphasis on the history of anatomy studies in art history. Some drawing experience is recommended but not required. We will meet remotely to engage with instructional demos, painting together while also working asynchronously.

 

Our work will be conducted remotely using both Canvas and Zoom. I will offer alternative assignments and ways of participating if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
