5 Day Painting The Head and Figure At BACCA in Foster City CA

Build your artistic vocabulary as you work sequentially to complete one finished figure painting. In a methodical, step-bystep process, learn the methods of oil painting from the initial color sketch to the final glaze. Over the course days we will dive into painting related issue while exploring the artists most fascinating subject matter- the human figure. You develop a preliminary drawing to ensure accuracy and likeness, create a monochromatic or color study to analyze shape, tone and composition and transfer your drawing to canvas or panel as you execute your painting in full color. Lectures and individual instruction aid your artistic progress. This workshop provides you with the necessary tools to bolster your artistic confidence. Much of the personal growth of the artist comes from having the right tools for self-correction and problem solving. With that in mind throughout the
class, you participate in discussion on materials, methods and techniques to equip you with every possible tool for your future artistic growth. Beginners through advanced students are welcome. You are met at whatever your skill level. Build your artistic vocabulary as you work sequentially to complete one finished figure painting.

In biology, the fundamental role of geometry and proportion becomes even more evident when we consider that moment by moment, year by year, aeon by aeon, every atom of every molecule of both living and inorganic substance is being changed and replaced. Every one of us within five to seven years will have a completely new body, down to the very last atom.
