Join NMA instructor Catherine Bobkoski for a 7-week Live Class focused on creating in-depth charcoal master copies. You will learn how to create stunning, painterly effects using a variety of charcoal materials and tools like paintbrushes, blending stumps, and rags. Rather than relying on a linear approach, you will explore the concepts of shape and mass to develop your ability to observe and design values. Catherine will guide you through the process of manipulating edges to create a sense of volume and space while copying the works of great artists in genres such as still life, landscape, portrait, and figure. Each lesson builds on the previous one, so you’ll be able to develop your skills and create beautiful master copies in no time. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced artist looking to enhance your skills, this class is perfect for you.
