Painting from Photographs

Beginner-Advanced

It is not simple to paint from a photograph, as the result is often a disappointing flatness and dullness. This course will teach you what it takes to translate a photo image into a painting. You will learn, hands-on, how to “read” a photo, and how to select and correctly interpret the visual information captured by the camera. When necessary, instruction may be adapted to help you further develop technically as well as conceptually.

Previous drawing and painting experience is a plus, but not a requirement for this course. A small class size allows for plenty of one-to-one with your instructor, which is an important part of this course. A materials list may be provided.
