    Overview

    This bootcamp hones artists' visual problem-solving skills in preparation for painting from life. It is designed to both help supplement our current students to target and build their skill level. Technique is best learned by observing successful examples. This class will familiarize the student to masterworks and allows them to cultivate painting skills by copying those works in monochrome and limited palette color.

    Students will learn the difference between, and how to produce, open grisaille, closed grisaille, and limited color palette paintings. By copying master paintings, students will further their study of technique and composition, this time focusing on using paint applicationand color to do so.

    This class explores the vast topic of color. Students will gain an understanding of how to mix color via color charts and studies, how light sources affect the color of their subject, and how to correctly observe and accurately reproduce the colors of the reference. The instructor will be painting alongside the students throughout the bootcamp.
