"Portrait & Figurative Painting"
Thursdays, January 27 - March 31, 2022
 

Join renowned realist painter and PAFA alum Fred Danziger from his studio via Zoom for this live portrait and figurative painting course! Whether working from good photo sources or a live model, the essential elements of figurative realism remain the same: composition, color, and accurate representations of light, form, and space. Demonstrations will address effective set up of workspace, palette, and lighting; choosing a good photo source; and both grisaille underpainting and alla prima painting techniques. Students will work independently, with individual critiques from the instructor. Aspects of the portrait will be emphasized – such as hair, hands, and obtaining a good likeness – but a variety of figure-based themes, additional subjects, and conceptual interests may be pursued.

"Value, Value, Value: Introduction to Scratchboard"
May 14-15, 2022
 

Scratchboard, as in black and white photography, draws its drama by including the widest range of light to dark in each “painting.” The process itself is as basic as drawing with a pencil. The artist uses a knife instead of a pencil and applies the strokes to a panel coated with black india ink over white clay instead of applying to white paper. With each stroke of the knife blade, a scratch removes the black ink revealing the white beneath. The challenge is to remember you are creating various grey tones all the way to white (depending on the amount of scratching you do to remove the black). It is a thrill mid-process because your imagery emerges with each stroke.
