In this active and engaging all-levels class we’ll be focussing on Egon Schiele’s use of gouache by both replicating his work, and creating our own Schiele styled paintings. With step-by-step on screen demonstrations, diagrams, and live tuition and instruction, you can expect to leave the class with wall-worthy reproductions of the work of this master of early 20th century figure painting. Taught by SLD founder Ann Mackowski.
We’ll be covering
—A brief history of Schiele’s gouache works
—Drafting a Schiele Gouache
—Full Reproduction of Schiele’s Work
—Applying Schiele’s style to our own works
