Art Inspiration: How to Paint People


Hello My Fellow Art Lovers- 

"I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people." 
- Vincent Van Gogh

 The Hourglass

I consider painting people to be one of the most challenging subjects! 

Yet it can also be the most emotionally rewarding. 


If painting people is new to you I recommend starting with basic simple silhouette forms.

Focusing on the outside shape and leaving the center of the body solid is a great way to start painting accurate proportions. 

Then work your way to incorporating body parts like hands and eyes.

In our upcoming class Painting People: Abstract to Realism we will do a variety of techniques that will build our drawing skills as we gain confidence painting people.


New Classes Added:
I had requests to add Painting People to the calendar.  We will be meeting Saturday afternoons in February!

Painting Club is now Thursday Afternoons AND Thursday Evenings.  

You can find our entire list of upcoming classes on Eventbrite.

Andy Warhol said, "Art is anything you can get away with."

So like Warhol we experiment with the form.  We morph it until it expresses what we are trying to say.
