In Foundation Figure Painting: Color Into Value, you will build a solid foundation for solving visual problems related to the figure, focusing on the structural anatomy of parts–both as value studies and color studies. During your study, you will gather strategies for analyzing structure and proportion as well as value and color relationships. You will work extensively mixing color relationships on the palette applying the paint directly onto the canvas. This course will be followed by Foundation Figure Painting: Figure in Context. Intermediate figure painting students are welcome.
