'On the Human Figure — Head and Hands' Summer Painting Workshop with Curney Nuffer

Thursday, August 9, and Friday, August 10  |  10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

This summer workshop by Curney Nuffer is for artists who want to learn about portrait painting (head and hands). Two days of classes, with a brief break fo lunch, will first explore how to approach sketching and then building the form of the human figure by painting dark to light. The model will be lit and emphasis will be placed on seeing the values of skin tones and using color.

 

The palette that Curney uses originated at the Art Students League in New York. It requires the use of only seven tube colors of paint and white and is key to building a strong foundation for painting the human form based upon simplicity. Even if you don’t want to paint figures or portraits, the lessons you will greatly improve your future work. Curney will explain and show you how to mix the palette during the workshop. You will practice with the mixed  palette before painting the model.

 

A supply list and more class info will be sent to every student via email in advance. Fee: $125, includes model fee. No refunds once classes have started.

Summer 2018 Painting Classes with Curney Nuffer

Tuesdays, June 19–July 31 |  10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

*No class on July 3. One makeup class on July 31.

 

Beginners, intermediate and advanced levels are welcome. Classes are primarily focused on oil painting, but Curney welcomes artists who work in acrylic and watercolor. The use of oil paint — from brushes and canvases to palette and technique — is the emphasis. Curney will demonstrate how the use of a limited palette emphasizes the importance of color, value, intensity, and placement of paint. Composition and the use of photos versus using still-life setups and plein air landscapes will be discussed. Demos and exercises are combined with painting time, or artists have the option to paint on their own with help from Curney throughout the class. A “New Student Info File” will be emailed to new students. Fee: $150 for 5 classes, paid in advance. No refunds after class begins. Missed classes may be made up during any other sessions. Learn more about Curney at www.curneynuffer.com.
