Lessons from the Masters | With Patty Fogle


Thursdays 1:00-4:00 pm

8 weeks | Limit 8 Students

Thursday April 4th – May 23rd.

Surprise yourself! Follow the drawing marks and brushstrokes of a Master artist of your choice.  Using a Still Life, Landscape, Portrait or Figure from the past or present, you’ll see how a masterwork evolves from initial drawing to a fully developed painting from the ground up.  It’s been a sound source of art training in ateliers over the ages and will likewise raise the level of your own artwork.
This logical path with charcoal & oil paint increases your confidence without having to make composition and color decisions. Then you may choose to add the style you copied into your next masterful painting.
