Winter 2020 Painting with Curney Nuffer

Dates: Monday, January 6 through Monday, February 24 1pm - 4pm

or Tuesday, January 7 through Tuesday, February 25, 2020 10am - 1pm

Classroom 1 – Located at Crossroads Art Center

Beginners, intermediate and advanced levels are welcome. Classes are primarily focused on oil painting, but Curney welcomes artists who work in acrylic and watercolor. The use of oil paint — from brushes and canvases to palette and technique — is the emphasis in these classes. Curney will demonstrate how the use of a limited palette emphasizes the importance of color, value, intensity, and placement of paint. Composition and the use of photos versus using still-life setups and plein air landscapes will be discussed. Demos and exercises are combined with painting time, or artists have the option to paint on their own with help from Curney throughout the class.

A supply list and more class info will be sent to every student via email in advance. No refunds once classes have started. Class size is limited to ten.

To register, please email Susan Dull @ susandull@icloud.com to be sure that there is room for you in the class. Your check will hold your place in class. Class fee is $240, which includes model fee. No refunds once classes have started.

Winter 2020 Drawing and Painting the Nude with Curney Nuffer

 Dates:Feb. 4 – 25, 2020 Tuesdays 5:30pm - 8:30pm    4 classes total 

 Classroom 1 – Located at Crossroads Art Center

“The nude does not simply represent the body, but relates it, by analogy, to all structures that have become part of our imaginative experience”. --- Sir Kenneth Clark, former Director, the National Gallery, London.

Curney Nuffer is offering classes for artists who would like to learn about drawing and painting the nude. This is a three-hour class once a week to explore sketching first, then building the form of the human body by painting dark to light. The model will be lit and emphasis will be placed on seeing the values of the skin tones as well as using color. Every other week there will be a different model.  

The palette that Curney uses is specially mixed by students in advance and originated at the Art Students League in New York. It requires the use of only 7 tube colors of paint and white. It is key to building a strong foundation for painting the human form based upon simplicity and strong shapes. Even if you don’t want to paint figures or portraits in the future, the lessons you will learn will greatly improve your drawing and painting. You can draw for all the classes and not paint if you prefer.

A supply list and more class info will be sent to every student via email in advance. No refunds once classes have started. Class size is limited to ten.

To register, please email Susan Dull @ susandull@icloud.com to be sure that there is room for you in the class. Your check will hold your place in class. Class fee is $165.00, which includes model fee. No refunds once classes have started.
