Event details

One-day workshop that explores the study of color composition thorough the practice of poster painting applied to the human figure. A poster is a small, simplified key of the light seen throughout a subject and serves as a first impression of the overall character of color. Color mixing, color theory and palette organization will also be covered.

Students will practice mixing flesh color strings from modified primary palette. They will then work for the remainder of the class on a single poster study from a live model.

*Model Fee Included
