Four out of Five dentists agree that drawing is fundamental to healthy gums and successful paintings… or something like that. But much like teeth, our paintings should have a solid foundation, i.e. solid drawing. Too many sweets (I’m looking at you, colorist painters) and we start to run into issues.

In this course, we will discuss how to use line, shape, form, perspective, and many other elements of drawing to create successful, beautiful paintings!

Each session will begin with a 30 minute lecture and slide presentation followed by a 90 minute demonstration by the instructor. Students are encouraged to ask questions during the lecture or demonstration.

Students will then be given a homework assignment of creating one painting at the end of the workshop. These paintings should be emailed to Marc within the following week. Recorded video critiques will be emailed back to the students.

What is the “rule of thirds?” Why can’t my focal point be in the center of the canvas? Why are there so many stupid rules in painting, anyway? Let’s talk about it! The composition of a painting is where you, as the artist, can really play. While there are plenty of rules regarding composition, we will discuss how and when to break them like the painting mavericks we are.

Each session will begin with a 30 minute lecture and slide presentation followed by a 90 minute demonstration by the instructor. Students are encouraged to ask questions during the lecture or demonstration.

Students will then be given a homework assignment of creating one painting at the end of the workshop. These paintings should be emailed to Marc within the following week. Recorded video critiques will be emailed back to the students.

The class will have a 1 hour lunch break.

Afterwards, students will begin work on their own paintings while Marc goes around to each student giving individualized instruction. Class will end at 4pm, but students may continue to paint if they wish.

We will end the workshop with a group discussion and review everything we’ve learned, had issues with, and what the next step will be in each of our artistic journey.
