Open Studio is an opportunity for all artists at every level to work from a live model. The live model is in one pose for the entirety of the series to allow participants to complete a painting if desired. Participants also may drop in at any time to paint a study alla prima.

There is no substitute for painting from life in learning to paint the figure. By painting from life, the artist learns to understand anatomy and the human form. Photographs distort values and edges, and learning the figure from life teaches the artist how to understand the differences.

Supply lists and reference materials available for beginners. Supplies not included. Email kpgreenwood@artsbma.org for more information.
