Take advantage of this amazing opportunity to develop the skills needed to create a successful figure painting from artist Craig Nelson, Co-Director of the Graduate School of Fine Art at the S.F. Academy of Art.

In this workshop, students will concentrate on accuracy in drawing, value, colour, and technique when painting the figure, both nude and clothed. The class will start with quick studies ranging from 25 to 40 minutes each then transition to longer paintings on the last few days. Craig will teach students his unique approach to painting the figure with ease. During the class there will plenty of demonstrations, lectures, and individual critiques.
