Saturday Afternoon Painting – with Catherine Lepp


Spring 2019

Course Description

This class is open to ALL levels of experience. Students can paint in acrylic or oil, working directly from the model in a set up. Emphasis will be on painterly issues and seeing the figure in context to the environment. One model will hold a pose for the duration of the class, with students working and re-working a single painting for that 4 hr session. Focus will be given to each individual student in context of the shared experience of the class. We will visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art for one class where we will sketch and discuss the works in relation to our own practice and processes.

Course Objectives

A painterly exploration of color, drawing, composition and process. The class will focus on one painting from the figure each week. Students will gain an understanding of how to translate an actual experience into paint. We will explore the color palette, scale, shape and mark making in relationship to what we are seeing and experiencing.
