My favorite artist MODIGLIANI!

Modigliani's style is so recognizable. It is loved the world over. I have painted many ladies in this style and I want to share my techniques with you. In this class we will try a few different medias all influenced by the lovely ladies of Modigliani. The video classes total 100 minutes of instruction to be watched at your leisure throughout the course.

VIDEO 1: The first video is a quick introduction to the man Modigliani.

VIDEO 2: This is a TWO part video we learn how to prepare the canvas for painting and then I take you through, step by step how to paint in acrylic. Step by step I talk through the process from start to finish.

VIDEO 3: In Video 3 (a two part video) we experiment drawing with conte crayons. Pastels can also be used. We sketch on brown paper using different skin tones.

VIDEO 4: In Video 4 I show how to take a Modigliani painting and make it into a quick sketch that can be detailed in watercolors.

VIDEO 5: Our last video focuses on watercolor and mixed media. This is the time to get out all your craft supplies and experiment with adding fun details to your watercolor painting!

Is there a way to see the students work from this class? Will you run the class again?

Hi LindieLee! I am going to show the students work soon. They did an AMAZING job! This has been my best class yet! It is coming to an end, but I hope to offer it again in the fall/winter season.

I notice that a lot of your classes have access until aug 2014, Do you rerun it again in august? And if you start in August 2014 do you get a year access?(until aug 2015?)

tascha said...

Ning will be changing it's format in August, and it may not work for my classes. Therefore, I am promising access until August, and if I can switch to there new format seamlessly I will just continue on and everyone will get to remain in the class for as long as I have it for. For now though, I am only promising access till August. Hope that answers your question :)

Hi, I notice you put "computer or ipad" under requirements. Many people use Android tablets and don't use Apple products. It might be good to include them. Thanks :)
