Registering now for our summer semester: June 4 - July 27

Watercolor Figure Painting

Instructor: Lauren Andrews

Prerequisites: Intro to Watercolor and Life Drawing or equivalent

Painting the figure from life with watercolor poses a unique set of challenges and benefits.  The purpose of this class is for students to explore different ways of approaching watercolor figure painting, and ultimately, to achieve some comfort and ease painting the figure from life.

The series will begin with structured exercises to help students develop techniques with which to approach life painting.  Towards the end of the series, there will be several open ended classes, allowing students to develop their own style and approach with the help of critiques and feedback.

This course is open to students who have some experience working with watercolor and life drawing, and would like to combine the two!
