Located in : Foundation Building, 8th Floor Peter Cooper Suite
Instructor: Julia Hickey

Regular Student: $300.00

This class is designed for students who enjoy observational drawing but are new to or struggle with the transition into painting. Observing the same scene, a set of progressive exercises will shift our perceptual focus from the edges of forms that define a drawing to the planes and colors that make a painting come to life. By the end of the weekend, each student will be able to appreciate and approximate the basic color-blocking that creates a sense of light and atmosphere. Each student will receive individualized feedback, and slide presentations will introduce students to a range of painters and styles. This class is suitable for upper beginners, including anyone who has taken Drawing for Absolute Beginners, as well as advanced students. Please bring $20 materials fee, payable to the instructor to the first class.
