Practice painting techniques and work with devices employed regularly by the old world masters. Most students of art have likely heard about under painting, dead layers, glazing, camera obscura, and camera lumina, but very few university or even art institute programs make time for students to actually practice these techniques. Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, and Neoclassical masters used many ingenious methods for creating depth, gauging perspective, and using available pigments to best advantage. The processes learned by practice in this class will change the way you look at all art and art making. Supply list will be provided.
