Academic Figure Painting with Lucas Bononi
Light, volume, and color are crucial elements within the artistic world. In this workshop, we will investigate these concepts – and many others – through the medium of the figure. Participants will work with a live model and have the option of drawing or painting, with an emphasis on accurate observation. The class will navigate the complexities of the drawing and painting process by breaking each down into easily accessible steps and answering questions pertaining to the physics of light and our perceptions of value.
