for the Opening Reception
of Charles David Viera's WILD: Wildlife Paintings and Drawing
. The exhibition of wildlife related artworks is in support of this Wildlife Painting and Drawing class for adults. On view March 23 through May 4
Wildlife has been an intriguing subject matter for artists throughout history. Artists like Winslow Homer and Rousseau have found inspiration and challenges when confronting the diverse shapes, textures and colors of birds, mammals and other members of the animal kingdom. This studio class will inspire students to create from a variety of sources. Drawing, color, and composition, as well as narrative and expressionistic possibilities are all explained through group and individual critiques and historical references.
Whether you are following the steps of Picasso’s bullfight paintings, an Audubon masterpiece, or just trying to capture the essence of your pet, this class has something to offer for everyone!
Open to students of all levels working in pastels, or oil and acrylic paints. The instructor will discuss materials during the first class. Students should bring the drawing or painting materials they currently have. Any questions regarding the class or materials please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
