Acrylic Painting: Fechin’s Portraits

March 30, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The artist Nicolai Fechin (1881–1955) provides inspiration for this portrait painting class, which explores the use of bold color and the acrylic medium. Working from photographs and other class participants as subjects, students learn palette knife and brush techniques and how to draw three-dimensional figures. Participants acquire tips and tricks for looking closely and creating strong compositions. A simplified approach to the color wheel enables students to identify and mix colors accurately. Learn about the expressive nature of light and dark values while studying the work of a master Russian portraitist.

For beginning and immediate students ages 15+

Dates: March 16, 23, and 30, 2013
