This figure class will focus on painting a different pose every week.  Emphasis will be on learning proper procedure and revealing form through layering and brushwork. Great class for all levels.

Beginners to painting can use monochrome only paints to make things easier and cut down on expenses. Intermediate students can use the four color Zorn palette. Advanced students can use a warm-cool palette. Choose a palette that is appropriate for your skill level.

When purchasing materials, note that you do not need every brush and size, just get a good variety of small, medium and large brushes in bristle (stiff hair) and sables (soft hair).
