Winter 2019 Painting Classes with Curney Nuffer

Choose from two sessions:

Mondays, January 7–February 26 | 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Tuesdays, January 8–February 26 | 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

 

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 in these classes. 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: $240 for 8 classes, paid in advance. No refunds after class begins. Missed classes may be made up during any other sessions. To register, send a check and a note with your name and choice of class day and time to Susan Dull at 304 Saint Davids Lane, Richmond, VA 23221. Learn more about Curney at www.curneynuffer.com.

'Painting the Nude Human Form' Winter Painting Classes with Curney Nuffer

Tuesdays, January 15–February 26  |  5:30–8:30 p.m.

CLASSROOM 1

“The nude does not simply represent the body, but relates it, by analogy, to all structures that have become part of our imaginative experience.” — Sir Kenneth Clark, former Director the National Gallery, London

 

Curney Nuffer is offering painting classes for artists who would like to learn about painting the nude, first a three-hour class once a week to explore sketching then building the form of the human body by painting dark to light. The model will be lit and emphasis will be placed on seeing the values of the skin tones as well as using color.

 

The palette that Curney uses is specially mixed by students in advance and originated at the Art Students League in New York. It requires the use of only 7 tube colors of paint and white. It 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 learn will greatly improve your future work.

 

Fee: $250, for seven classes. A supply list and more class info will be sent to every student via email in advance. No refunds once classes have started.

Creating Impressionistic Watercolors with the Mouth Atomizer | Ryan Fox

Monday, May 20– Wednesday, May 22  |  9:30 a.m.–4:00 p.m. each day

 

The mouth atomizer is a device that is used to spray watercolor paint, ink, or other liquids evenly over a surface.  A traditional, non-aerosol way to apply paint, the mouth atomizer functions like an airbrush powered by your breath. The atomizing technique creates an atmospheric effect that is difficult to achieve with a brush. It is also to add texture to foregrounds and buildings as well as create entire paintings in an impressionistic pointillism style.

 

Students will create paintings by masking and spraying colors onto watercolor paper. After an instructor discussion about value choices and color choices, students will embark on an artistic journey using a unique painting tool. No watercolor experience is necessary. Students are welcome to bring their own reference material or can copy the instructor’s painting.

 

Fee: $350, including afternoon snacks and beverages (bring your lunch or purchase from café next door). Deposit: $150, with $200 balance due by May 1. Materials list is available upon registration.
