This course is based on the approach used by the European art academies. The class will consist of several long-term assignments such as still life, portrait, and figure, and include thorough drawing. Students will learn to see specific realistic images as a set of abstract shapes, and to see tonal values and colors in relation to the whole rather than to the neighboring areas. Another important topic will be the study of specifics of oil paint as a material.
