PLAYING with OLD MASTERS, online
This Online, 7-Week Course will explore COMPOSITION, through dimensions of Old Master paintings. Each participant will pick an Old Master painting to explore, working through a step-by-step set of exercises. Beginning with charcoal and an analysis of the compositional structure, by the end we’ll end up getting crazy, and experimenting with marking, color, and movement.
For those that love Old Master traditional painting, but want to make it their own. Or maybe just curious!
