Evening Classes

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. 


Color Study for the Figure and Portrait (10 classes) - SOLD OUT!

Thursdays, September 13th - November 15th
5:00pm - 8:00pm
Cost: $525
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.
