Painting the Figure in Oil – Jordan Sokol

Course ID
Painting the Figure in Oil
June 24 - 28, 2019, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
$1,000 for non-members, $950 for members. Non-refundable deposit of $300 must be made by May 24 to reserve your place.

During this 5 day class students will work on one pose as we explore the various stages of the figure painting process. Through daily demonstrations and individualized critiques we’ll discuss basic and advanced concepts of understanding and deconstructing the visual experience into easily understood elements, ultimately developing a structured thought process for translating those elements accurately in paint.

Using a limited palette, we’ll explore figure construction, the relationship of light and form, tonal abstraction, palette organization and the “optical impression”. .


Jordan Sokol is the Director of the U.S. branch of the Florence Academy of Art.
