We offer evening classes each trimester to accommodate students with busy schedules. We are constantly adding new workshops, so check back often to find exciting opportunities to learn new techniques, methods, and styles.
Evening Atelier Class (12 classes)
Tuesdays, Jan 8th to March 26th
Wednesdays, Jan 9th to March 27th
5:00pm - 8:00pm
Instructor: Eric Johnson
For students who wish to participate in the Atelier Program, we offer an evening class in which students will work on the regular school curriculum. Students working outside the atelier program should also consider this class as it will improve your ability to see and think about value and rendering form.
Color Study for the Figure and Portrait (10 classes) - SOLD OUT!
Thursdays, Jan 10th - March 14th
5:00pm - 8:00pm
Instructor: Emanuela De Musis
The color study is a preliminary sketch that determines specific color mixtures and establishes, in the most simplified manner, the value range that will best achieve a light effect and create volume. An essential step of the painting process at the Academy of Realist Art Boston, this stage is subsequently used as an indispensable reference when completing a naturalistic painting.
At the end of this 10 week class, the student will take away a greater understanding of how to simplify planes, properly compose values and create color harmony, including the mapping out of temperature patterns.
Day one will be dedicated to a basic lecture on terminology and concepts, an introduction to materials and a painting demo; thereafter, the class will work on three 2 week poses from the nude figure and one 3 week pose from the clothed portrait.
All levels welcome.
THIS CLASS IS ON A WAITLIST. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD YOUR NAME AND/OR BE NOTIFIED THE NEXT TIME WE OFFER IT, PLEASE FILL OUT THE FORM. The Spring term students will first be pulled from the waitlist, then any current students, then we open it up to outside people.
