Figure Painting

Location: ARTichokes in Leawood, KS
Thursdays, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Class Dates: July 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th
Cost for 4 classes: $230.00, plus tax

This class will begin with a major focus on composition. Students will do charcoal composition sketches and then develop some small thumbnail paintings to figure out the overall color scheme. Then, students will pick one of these paintings to develop further, working with setting a palette and building from softer edges to selectively choosing where and why to add detail.

A live, clothed model will pose for portions of the class and student will also paint from photographs. Improve your artistic eye with helpful tips from one of Kansas City's best figure artists, Lacey Lewis. All art supplies are provided by ARTichokes & this cost is included in the enrollment fee.

Life Sessions at the Studio

Location: Lacey's Studio at the Pressroom, 750 Armstrong in KC, KS
Wednesdays, 6pm - 9pm
January 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th
Cost for 4 sessions: $140.00

This is a loose, unstructured class where Lacey will provide as much or as little instruction or guidance as you want or need. We paint for 3 hours from life, and use the same model in the same pose for 2 consecutive meetings so that we are able to spend 6 hours on each painting. This allows us to create a more finished piece than is possible with typical group life sessions. You are also welcome to draw or sculpt during class.

Please bring your own easel and painting/drawing materials. Contact Lacey if you would like a list of suggested materials for painting from life. All levels of experience are welcome.
