Academic Drawing Class

Today was the last day of our Academic Drawing Class at the North River Art Association.
 We spent 4 weeks on the face and 4 weeks on the figure. It was exciting to see the growth happening in the class throughout the sessions. We had many days off due to shows and snow days, but we got through.
Here is the last portrait demo I did in stages.

Here are some photos of some of the students who painted the whole figure instead of just the face. I think they are all spectacular!

In this class, I tried to get the students not to get a perfect likeness, but to go out of their comfort zones, using more paint, bigger brushes, going outside the lines to make an excellent painting.
New class starts next week. Go to to join.
