Oil Paint Stick Boot Camp: Drawing and Painting the Figure and Portrait

Education // Oil Paint Stick Boot Camp: Drawing and Painting the Figure and Portrait

Jun 2 - Jun 4

Overview // In this workshop, we will explore basic techniques and unleash the power of oil paint sticks as we work from the figure and portrait. Students will discover paint sticks’ versatile, direct, immediate, and expressive potential. There are a wide range of techniques to explore such as drawing, painting, blending, washes, wiping, scraping, and scratching back into and alla prima to name just a few. We will also work on different surfaces including paper, canvas, and wood. Experience the sensation of drawing and painting at the same time!

Those students who are not interested in working from the model will have the option to create landscapes, cityscapes, still lifes, abstracts, or animal drawings and paintings. You will be asked to provide your own still life objects or photographs to work from. Prior experience with figure drawing and painting is helpful but not necessary. All experience levels welcomed.
