Reestablish your foundation this fall in a six-week figurative art class.
The focus of this course is figurative representation. We will be drawing our inspiration from works of art in the permanent collection and currently on exhibition by artists like Sharon Kopriva, Enrique Alférez, Purvis Young and many more. The course begins with figure drawing studies and progresses to realistic and abstract acrylic painting techniques. Topics of discussion and contemplation will include the “gaze” of the artist on the human form and how to incorporate simple mindfulness exercises into your artistic practice to enhance creative flow.
This weekly class meets once a week virtually from 12 – 3 p.m. on Mondays, September 14- October 19.
$200 members / $250 non-members
