Ages 14-17 | Building Your Image: Using Reference Photographs in Your Art


Ages: 14 - 17

Ability: All

Expertise: Painting, Drawing, Teen Studio, Youth Classes

This class will explore how reference photographs can be used to create a painting or drawing of the impossible. Artists sometimes see complex and surreal visions in their mind they would like to show others and often times painting directly from the imagination isn't enough. Many artists have gone to great lengths to find references for their work, luckily we have Google these days. With a strong focus on building technique and developing observational skills, we will paint and draw from bits and pieces of photographs to create an original and otherworldly image. After all, sea serpents can't model for us!
