In MasterClass, teacher demonstrates a technique and you effortlessly create an artwork from start to completion - even if you have never had any other painting experience than in “Learn to Paint in One Day”. MasterClasses are designed to help you develop your talent and become proficient in less than a year. You begin to acquire drawing and painting skills unusually quickly, and after taking a variety of MasterClasses you will be an independent artist.

Even artists with experience come to L2P training to unlock their talent.

MasterClasses are based on utilizing this enormous inborn capacity of the “Right brain”. In 3 hours of MasterClass you learn ANY technique and effortlessly create an artwork from start to completion - even if you never had any other painting experience than in “Learn to Paint in One Day”.

Painting on Unusual Surfaces

Level: Beginner to Advanced  

Prerequisite: 2 Special Introductory Drawing Classes

In this project you’ll find out that tonal values in a painting can “flatten” an uneven surface or completely eliminate from our perception the protruding forms on the substrate. We will create a very complex, textured surface, then paint a single object on it and witness this amazing “disappearance” of the texture, caused optically by the tonal rendering of the form’s lights and shadows.

Please note that you will need to transport your artwork home, so you will want to bring a protective drop cloth for your car, in case the art is wet.                                                                                  

Materials

  • 2 wooden substrates (flat panels or box-like panels), any size: for example 30x40, 20x20, 36x36, or 12x36. The substrates do not have to be of the same size. Round shapes are also suitable.
  • Wood glue
  • Paper towels
  • Gloves (optional)
  • Gesso - white or black
  • Acrylic paints, your preferred colors
  • An object to depict, that has personal value to you
  • Photo camera (or cell phone), for taking snapshots of the evolution of your piece

SATURDAY, 10:00am-1:00pm

Figurative Painting or Drawing

Level: Beginner to Advanced

Prerequisite: 2 Special Introductory Drawing Classes 

Paint or draw from observation: the setup is with a live model (female nude) reclining against pillows and ornate textiles. You can include mixed-media elements in your work and plan a more substantial project as the model will hold this pose for the next two Saturdays. You can make your own choice to either devote the entire session to one finished artwork, or time yourself and create multiple pieces 1-10 minutes each. If you prefer to sculpt or do a cut-out you can do that as well.

Please note that your artwork(s) may still be wet at the end of class, so please bring a protective drop cloth or a shallow box for your car.  

Model fee applies, $6 to $10, depending on the number of students in class.

Materials

  • Bring your preferred drawing or painting materials.
  • Roll of paper towels
  • Photo camera (or cell phone) for taking snapshots of your progress
  • Model fee - $7-$10, depending on the number of students in class
