Invitation to Artists: Dacia Gallery is pleased to offer and exciting Figure Painting Workshop with artist Lee Vasu in our intimate gallery setting. Surrounded by art, let us inspire you to express yourself creatively and have an incredible time learning. This workshop is perfect for absolute beginners or those who have taken previous art classes and want to continue their artistic journey. Let your imagination loose and brush up on your creative side in a stimulating art class at Dacia Gallery.
Workshop Description: We will be painting from the live model. Pose lengths will vary from short to long, and each student will produce a finished painting. Focusing under instructor guidance on different aspects of the figure, such as form, light, shape, distribution of force, mood, and personality. The aspects discussed will aid the student to develop three fundamental elements of figurative painting: the technique of drawing, the skill of seeing the figure, and the introduction of life into the painting with realistic flesh tones. The class will also include short lectures, instructor demonstrations, and personalized critique of the work produced, with suggestions for future practice. We will be working with oil on canvas. A canvas size of 18 by 24 inches is recommended for the project. The instructor Lee Vasu, will work with each individual student instructing them through the process, to complete a full painting.
