Teacher: Ruthie V

What you'll learn in this painting class:

One of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, Alice Neel described her style as “a combination of realism and expressionism.” 

She painted friends, family, lovers, strangers, poets and artists, in addition to depicting still lifes and landscapes. Her paintings are expressive with both color and line, and carried an emotional intensity. 

In this class, we’ll study the style, processes and ideas inspired by Alice Neel in both painting and drawing by working from still life, a clothed model, and from photographs.

Drawers and painters of various experience levels are welcome. Come prepared with any drawing or painting media that you enjoy. If you are painting, you must have experience in your chosen media.

Beginners welcome. You will be given challenges appropriate for a beginner, and with a style like Neel’s, realistic perfection is a challenge best avoided! Beginners will work from photographs and still lifes.

Materials:
Materials are artist’s choice. Come prepared to do several studies each day, on paper and canvas (if you’re painting).

New to drawing? Bring a big pad of drawing paper (11×14″ minimum size, bigger is funner, Strathmore is nice) and any drawing materials (pens, pencils, etc) you have. After learning a bit about you, your instructor may suggest you try something new.

Day 1 will be primarily spent on sketches, and possibly the first layer of a painting.

Day 2 will be the chance to work on paintings if you’re a painter, or more drawings. Your choice.

Photo inspirations will be taken in class, and we will work from life.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy
Darn! We understand stuff happens sometimes. Full refunds available up to start of class.
