This course is focused on advanced painting techniques and concepts. It is intended to improve the artist's brush work, paint application, and confidence. Three classes per month are devoted to working from life and the fourth class per month will be for in-process work and individual critiques. Students must be actively painting outside of Braitman Studio classes to stay on schedule with the class.
Surface and Materials
Each class will introduce you to an art-history concept that directly connects to the medium you will focus on. You will work in a variety of mediums and materials such as linseed oil, stand oil, wax, found objects, burlap, and plaster. Through a deeper understanding of the tools used to prepare and build your paintings, you will achieve a fearlessness that allows you to explore the creation process and strengthen your voice as a painter.
In this class we will explore advanced painting techniques, approaches, and methods not covered in our regular painting classes. This is a hybrid between abstract, concrete imaging, and daily painting classes. Each student will have the opportunity to explore the painting process from idea to concept to execution. Unleash your creativity through concept, exploration, application, and presentation.
Working from a live, nude model, we will be using innovative techniques and media. Our goal in this class is the art work and process rather than traditional accuracy of subject.
For students age 13 to 18, painting, drawing, printmaking, clay, and more!! This class offers serious art instruction in a working artist's studio. Figure drawing is no mandatory, but it is always encouraged as an appropriately attired model will be present for each class. Students are challenged individually and allowed to grow at their own pace.
