Painting Marathon – VIRTUAL with Elisa Jensen & Guests
Why Paint the Figure
This figure painting class will explore in depth the development of figurative imagery in art. Focus will be on finding personal imagery and developing that imagery to the fullest extent by working from drawings, from the imagination and from memory. Sources will be drawings from the virtual model, the study of our own environment and transcription of specific masterworks, western and nonwestern, from ancient times to contemporary art.
The first week will involve a series of small drawings and paintings exploring color palettes, color relationship, scale and image. Week two we will develop two larger works based on the work done in week one.
