Painting the Human Form is a weekly, three hour class designed to teach the anatomy of the human form, strengthen anatomical drawing skills, and demonstrate how light wraps around the human figure of a live model. Students will learn the foundational importance of studying monochromatic values in transitioning to color tones, color harmony and color mixing.

This class will be fun and fulfilling as students create beautiful and unique works of art that represent their individuality. Students will develop their observation skills by careful study of the dimensions of the human form and figure.

Each week, students will create a beautiful and unique work of art that represents their individuality. Students will rotate positions in the classroom each week to capture various perspectives of the model. All artistic levels and skill sets are welcomed into this course as each artist will be instructed at their level of experience. Models will sit for two consecutive weeks.

Students will supply their own materials. Minimum size of canvas, paper, or board is 20”x16”. Gina will be instructing in several mediums, oils, pastels, acrylics, and inks. Students are to bring all materials for the medium they choose.

Contact Gina if you have any questions.
