Stand on the shoulders of giants and learn to make bold, confident, completed paintings inspired by Old Masters. Copying master paintings to strengthen painting skills has been utilized since the Renaissance. Each student creates two paintings during this course. The first uses a simple step-by-step transfer system to copy an Old Master painting. This process familiarizes you with approaches to composition, value, patterns of light and application of color. The second painting is more free-form: transferring and copying a photograph of your choice. Each class begins with instructor demonstrations, showing examples of both student and professional artists who utilize the same methods to create their own masterful paintings. This class is appropriate for beginning and intermediate painters.
