Saturday, December 14
10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
instructor: Mia Bergeron
Back by popular demand! Nicknamed the “sporting” part of painting, this marathon will be sure to inspire you and to get your creative juices flowing. Students will paint from a live nude model all day, painting roughly 9 sketches. This is a great way to get accustomed to painting if you are a beginner, or get more mileage if you are a pro. Mia will spend one on one time with each student throughout the day, demonstrating techniques to more efficiently capture gestures and lighting. Oils are recommended for this class, although acrylics are welcomed.
All levels are welcome! There will be a one-hour lunch break. Model fee included.
