Teaching of oil painting by practicing the representation of the living model, in order to acquire the pictorial bases or to widen one’s technique.
The human representation by its requirement of accuracy in the proportions, its appreciation of the values, its search for expressiveness, offers an inexhaustible source of possibilities of approach of painting.
Touch, colour, drawing, form/counter-form, painted sketches, light, impasto, context: all technical and sensitive aspects are addressed.
The oil technique, with its supple modelling and slow drying, allows students to revisit and correct their studies during the painting sessions and to improve their practice and their perception of reality.
Painting teaches us to look. This course requires a knowledge of life drawing.
Courses are taught in French. Material to be provided by the participant (list communicated at registration).
Break in classes during spring break from April 24 to May 08, 2023.
