Figure Painting with Anastasia Pollard
In this exciting two day course, Anastasia Pollard will guide you through two days of figure painting in oils from life.

On day 1 you will paint fast, from 20 and 30 minute poses. These quick poses will help you loosen up and by repeating the entire painting process you will get a good feel of what painting the figure from start to finish entails.

On day 2 you will slow down and paint a single pose over the course of the whole day. This will consolidate your learning from day 1 and let you push a single painting to completion.

“Great setting, great teacher, great support; hard to fault. I would have loved it to go on longer… As it is, it’s challenging yet accessible to all. I couldn’t be happier. Even the couches are great!” – Christopher, July 2021 student
