Painting the figure has always been a staple exercise in learning the craft of oil painting. This week long daytime course is ideal for those looking to start their exploration into the art of Figure Painting, or even for the more experienced artist who wants to improve their fundamentals.
Nick Robinson (Florence Academy prize winner 2012 + 2013, Art Renewal Center finalist 2016) will instruct in the visual method: translating what we observe from life into oil painting on the canvas. The first class will explore the materials involved, some theory and preparation for the model. The rest of the course will be comprised of working from the nude in one 18 hour painting.
Canvasses and most materials will be provided (with the exception of paints). A materials list will be sent to each participant.
Dates: 6 mornings, starts Thursday 9 November
Times: 10:00 – 13:00
Location: BLOCK T Studios, Dublin 8
