The Advanced Painting Course

The Advanced Painting Course is intended for painters who have completed the Introductory Course and Painting Course and are interested in continuing to advance in painting within the Academy of Figurative Art framework.

The course can continue for as long as each painter wishes, and classes are held once a week covering a full study day.

In the course we engage in copying master artists’ drawings, in extended-session painting with a model, and work on paintings whose primary aim is to emphasize space. Considerable attention is paid to painting technique and to reproducing the image on as realistic a level as possible.

Long sittings with a model, working on individual projects and creating a personal direction for the future are all lent considerable weight during the Advanced Course.
