This course is designed for both beginner and advanced students.
This course takes its lead from the Masters. Students will choose to work directly from a Master copy reproduction taken from periods ranging from the Baroque to 19th century Masters. Students will be lead through a very systematic step by step approach from the drawing down to the finishing glazing. Pure painting technique will be explained, demonstrated and practiced each week. This was the method in which apprentices worked in the ateliers of the past. Working directly from the Masters gives students the opportunity to study and learn exacting technique without the hindrance of working with a model. A full understanding of building a painting will be taught, demonstrated and practiced which will become the backbone for further painting projects.
Course tuition includes master copy reference unless student has their own they would like to copy.
