Beginning Figure Painting

3-day workshop with Sarah Sedwick
June 9-11, 2017
9:30 am - 4:30 pm
$320 (includes model fee)

Join Eugene artist Sarah Sedwick for this three-day workshop with a focus on the figure, from gesture drawing to painting in oils. If you love drawing the figure and want to try your hand at oil painting, this workshop is for you! We’ll go through the process step-by- step, from materials to paint mixing. Beginning with drawing in graphite, we will move into painting, simplifying the figure into its basic value shapes, and learning to mix gorgeous flesh tones from a simple palette of three colors plus white.

You'll receive a materials list when you register (or view it online, here). Oregon Art Supply is generously offering a 20% discount on all materials for this class.

Note that this workshop takes place upstairs and there is no elevator. Bring your lunch or plan to visit the nearby cafes in the Whiteaker neighborhood.
