Face and Figure Water Soluble Workshop with Lydia Host

Posted on: April 26th, 2019
Drawing and painting the human figure is a time proven method to improve art skills! We will begin with a focus on the face, with tips for getting a likeness and using value to define the features, and then work towards accurately depicting the whole figure. This workshop will be working with a clothed figure model, with an emphasis on using and visually describing classical drapery. Students will have fun exploring new materials while working with water-soluble media such as graphite and watercolor pencils, as well as a new product- Liquid Charcoal. Liquid Charcoal goes on like watercolor, but dries to a charcoal finish! Participants will bring their own supplies, with the exception of the Liquid Charcoal, which will be provided by the museum. A supply list will be distributed upon registration. This class is designed for the beginner and intermediate artist, and is age appropriate for 14 and up. Monday – Friday, June 10 – 14 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. $190/$145 members EARLY BIRD: $170/$125 members Register by 05/28/19 for Early Bird Pricing
