All Levels Welcome 
In this workshop, we will paint a single painting over the duration of the class. There will be a strong emphasis on drawing and the understanding of the human anatomy. Any medium will be welcome in this class, whether the student wishes to continue in the medium they currently use, or to explore a medium they’ve been interested in for a while, but had never really pursued in any real sense. Continuing with a painting is important as a tool of study enabling the student to see more and in turn paint more of what they see. With our emphasis on artistic anatomy, the way the figure is in any position will be better understood. The first part of the workshop day will be spent in practices intended to bolster confidence in drawing and the use of the respective media the student wishes to use, followed by the main event, the continuing pose
