Painting For The Soul: Class 3 Life Drawing says
Class 3:
In the first class we focused on the expression of formless raw emotion.In November, there will be three Thursday classes in which we will be drawing from life and learning to see in a new way. We will be drawing from a model and will go over fundamental life-drawing techniques. Though we will be focusing on representational work, abstract expression is still encouraged and we will discuss the role it plays.

In this class we will tap into the inner well within to feel creation and flow with the moment. We will focus on identifying blockages which inhibit growth and methods of purging this stale energy through cathartic expression. We will explore this energy in association with the chakras to achieve balance. Classes will start with a meditation and will be guided into a spontaneous creation of a painting. Hot soothing tea will be available prior to the meditation.
Each class will focus on a different chakra, but all classes will help develop:
- A flowing, individual creative process
- Drawing techniques
- Conceptualizing & planning
- Composition & space
- Working with highlights & shadows
- Blending methods
