The Intimate Narrative
Wednesday & Thursday, June 15-16
Students must be enrolled in one of the following summer classes:
- Life Drawing
Sign up required, contact Matt West for information, 307.778.1164
Working directly from the live model, this two-day workshop will integrate the physical nature of oil paint with the intimate essence of the human body. The goal will be to create a painting that carries meaning beyond the mere representation of the figure. A variety of traditional and contemporary painting methods will be covered to aid in understanding and expanding visual language. Students will be guided through a painting while being encouraged to explore with experimentation and spontaneity. Creating a good composition, cropping and figure ground relationships will be emphasized. The student will gain a clear understanding of color and tonal relationships while strengthening realistic figure proportions and anatomy. All levels are welcome.
