Painting the Figure in Oil – Jordan Sokol

Course ID
Painting the Figure in Oil
July 9 - 13, 2018
$1,000 for non-members, $950 for members. Non-refundable deposit of $300 must be made by March 31 to reserve your place.

During the 5 day course students will be lead through various stages of the figure painting process using a live model. Daily demonstrations and individualized critiques will acquaint students with basic and advanced concepts of understanding and deconstructing visual phenomena into separate organized elements, and develop a structured thought process for translating those elements accurately in paint.

Using a limited palette, students will work from one pose throughout the five days, and discuss the sight-size method, figure construction, visual anatomy, light and form, tonal relationships, palette organization and the “optical impression”.


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