Portrait Painting with Garrett (10 classes) - 5 spots left

Tuesdays, January 7th to March 10th
5:00pm - 8:00pm
Cost: $550
Instructor: Garrett Vitanza

In this 10 week class, we will be covering how to construct a portrait oil painting from the ground up. This class will go over typical painting beginnings that can be adapted for any subject matter such as: imprimatura, palette structure, and underpainting. Eventually culminating in problem solving some of the more difficult aspects of portrait painting such as: proportion, flesh color, and blending/glazing. Demonstrations and Lectures will be done throughout the class to lay out methodically the process and technique of each stage. Handouts and materials will be given out on anatomy and painting mediums throughout the course as well.

This class does not have any prerequisites but it is highly recommended that you are enrolled in our program at the academy before taking the class, as it will makes things easier but again this is not mandatory.

Color Study for the figure (10 classes) - (SOLD OUT)

Thursdays, January 9th to March 12th
5:00pm - 8:00pm
Cost: $550
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.

All levels welcome.
