Join Diane Rappisi for a fresh perspective on the ever-challenging, always beautiful, human figure. Working from the live (nude) model, participants will manage the critical components of composition, gesture, shape, structure and color. Participants begin monochromatically in either charcoal or oil grisaille, and proceed to full color work in pastel or oil. All levels are welcome.
