Oil Painting
The Figure as Color Study: 7/25 & 7/26 9:30- 12:30. Working from a costumed model, students will create small color studies by quickly blocking in large shapes in a "wet into wet" technique that results in a freshness and gestural quality. https://delaplaine.org/class/?id=21-1-PT01

Depending on what is happening with the COVID-19 situation, classes may change to online instruction, in which case the classes may be changed and would be geared towards subjects that don't require live models.
