Figure Painting with Hollis Dunlap

Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019, 1:00 pm
Figure Painting with Hollis Dunlap;

Lyme Art Association, 90 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT , 06371

Paint the figure from life with Hollis Dunlap. Students will focus on creating a strong sense of 3-dimensional form by looking closely at light effects, proportions, edges, and various methods of paint application.

We will explore a practical use of proportion and anatomy, focusing on major anatomical landmarks, allowing students to study the way that master painters model form and make color choices. Several techniques will be demonstrated, including more traditional underpainting methods as well as direct painting of the lightest and darkest values. Use of contrasting thick and thin paint will be demonstrated in the manner of master painters such as Rembrandt and Rubens, at the same time exploring more naturalistic color effects in the style of 19th century painting.

Painters will be encouraged to build the sense of form from the largest masses first, to create a sense of finish to the painting before small details are added. Basic geometric shapes will be used as analogies to various forms of the human body to give the painting a convincing sense of form as well as giving the student more confidence in painting complex figurative work. Please visit hollisdunlap.com to view selections of his work.

Wednesdays, 1 pm – 4 pm, January 23 – March 27

Please contact Hollis directly by emailing info@hollisdunlap.com

Drop In Story Time for Ages 2–5. We reinforce early literacy skills through books, songs and finger plays. There is also a craft based on the weekly theme.

Our Story Times employ techniques aimed at developing Early Literacy skills and enabling caregivers to reinforce the same skills at home. We are avid proponents of reading aloud to children, long past the time they have learned to read themselves. This improves listening skills, attention span, fluency, increases vocabulary and develops a love for story. These are all skills necessary for a successful school transition. In addition, you will find educational toys and computers in the Children’s area, along with AWE Early Learning stations offering digital literacy programs for pre-K and elementary schoolers.
