Paint like DEGAS - Live Model/ Pastels SOLD OUT
Sun 30 April 2017, 15:30 – 18:30 BST
In this session you will learn how to use coloured pastels like the admirer of female beauty Edgar Degas. You will be invited to travel back in time to enter into artist's shoes with having a life model in the studio, as he did.
This is an introduction session into pastel painting - technique that he used extensively. We will look closely at the colour contrast he applied in rendering the skin tones. This will be followed by the art historical account of the period in question and the story of the artist. It will be a fascninating class with life model in the studio - and a nude. (this class is open to adults only)
It is a life painting class and not copying the existing painting! You will create your own masterpiece in the manner of the great master!
This course of workshops is all about learning the techniques of various artists, their place in the art history, the range of materials they used and a subject matter they favoured, which we will mimic and study in detail in the studio, yet from life and not from a copy!
These classes will be limited to 9 people and will last approximately 3 hours.
You will be able to enter the world of a selected famous artist and do live painting in their manner under a guidance of academicaly trained artist! It will be an insightful journey into art complimented with the lesson in art history and in-depth story of the artist you will enjoy!
You will never look at these artists again in the same way upon your next museum visit!!!
