Section B: This 7 session, three hour class meets Saturday mornings 11:00am-2:00pm from July 11, 2015 through August 22, 2015. 

In this class I will present alternating exercises for intermediate drawers and beginning painters. Each student can elect to work only on drawing, only on painting, or on both. The intermediate drawing work will focus on the figure, trying to maintain the attitudes of Intro Drawing when faced with the complexity of the figure. The painting exercises will be an introduction to acrylic paint, emphasizing broad experimentation and the freedom to radically change paintings. Advanced drawers and painters may also take this class and elect to follow the exercises or work independently as they choose.

If you are new to Phil's teaching, even if you are very experienced, take Intro before taking Intermediate. Many experienced artists have taken Phil's Intro and all have said it was unlike any of their previous training and not the least bit remedial.

Materials: For the first session, painters should bring some acrylic colors you like, acrylic titanium white, acrylic gloss gel medium, some cheap brushes about thumb size, and any shape palette knife. We will begin painting on the studio paper, so no canvasses are necessary. Drawers only need to bring graphite, charcoal, and erasers. Paper will always be provided.
