The Color of Flesh

Kinnear SLOMA workshop image

In this open media workshop, we will be exploring expressive color as it relates to the figure. Artists will draw inspiration from diverse skin pigmentation, light-color, shadow-color, then push forward into poetic-color using elements of color theory.   We will be working from live models under different lighting conditions as our starting point. The focus will be on colorito over disegni, so artists are invited to work in mediums they are already comfortable in.


The workshop will include drawing/painting demos, and brief art appreciation lectures. Bring play, bring eyes, bring hands, and bring a lot of surfaces to experiment on, we are going to make A LOT of ART! A Flesh & Light Color List will be provided in the workshop materials list. 1 hr break for lunch.
