Grow your painting skills and become familiar with a variety of materials and techniques through the study of the human figure.

Topics and projects include gesture studies, painting from photographs, and portrait painting from a mirror. Students will learn through a combination of live Zoom sessions and posted instructional content. Some prior painting and drawing experience is recommended.
