Robin Smith will guide students in a 3 dimensional, structural approach to painting and drawing the live model. Working individually with each student, the instructor will help them learn how to trust their eyes and train their hands to capture the unique essentials of each model through color, shape, line and composition while working in a painterly, tactile manner. Poses will generally last 4 weeks and vary between clothed and nude. The class is open to all levels. Smith was recently a subject of a cover profile in Artist magazine (Jan/Feb 2015).
