This course will cover the process of drawing and/or painting with the student’s preferred media: graphite, charcoal, colored pencil, oil and chalk pastels, watercolor, acrylic paint, or oil paint. Students furnish their own supplies, but please ask us for advice on brands if you are purchasing from scratch as not all art supplies are created equal!
For this class, students can choose their own observational content. Examples of this include landscape, animals, portrait, and still life. Felicia will assist in helping each individual discover which approach will work best for them. The following techniques can be explored, or your own personal approach can be honed. Topics covered can include open vs. closed form, hatching and cross-contouring, perspective, vellatura, verdaccio, Flemish method indirect painting, Renaissance and Baroque painting methods, and alla prima.
Below is a standard drawing & painting list (note: you will likely only need drawing or painting supplies, not both!). If you want to work in materials other than what is mentioned, please contact us for suggestions.
