BLOCK T Skillsets Presents // An Introduction to Figure Painting // A 4 week course with the artist Nicholas Robinson // Starts Monday, September 9th // 18:30 - 21:30

Painting the figure has always been a staple exercise in learning the craft of oil painting. This 4 week evening course is ideal for those looking to start their exploration into the art of Figure Painting, or even for the more experienced artist who wants to improve their fundamentals.

Nick Robinson (Florence Academy prize winner 2012 & 2013, Art Renewal Center finalist 2016) will instruct in the visual method: translating what we observe from life into oil painting on the canvas. The first class will explore the materials involved, some theory and preparation for the model. The rest of the course will be comprised of working from the nude in one single-pose painting.

Course Fee: €175

* most materials will be provided, though a small materials list will be sent to each participant.

** A deposit option is available, with the remainder to be paid on the first night
