Oct 02, 2023, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Moab Arts & Recreation Center, 111 E 100 N, Moab, UT 84532, USA
Class Dates: Three Mondays in October from 6-9 p.m.
Class Description: We will focus on the fundamental aspects of approaching figure painting using oil paint. The importance of studying and painting from life will be discussed, and a live model will be used in the second and third sessions. Drawing skills will be emphasized and students will be encouraged to paint with a limited color palette. The objective of the class is to become more familiar with, and comfortable, painting the figure. The hope is that students will become empowered to practice on their own and attend figure model sessions.
About the Instructor: Dustin Hardgrove discovered art practice at nearly 30 years old, after many years spent
contemplating and writing about philosophy and critical theory. Art appeared as a new and appropriate avenue to explore ideas of nature, environmental devastation, existence and resistance. He is a working class artist whose creative process has blossomed in the free hours aside from labor as a fine carpenter. The ethics of hard work and precise craftsmanship have all transferred into his practice as a studio and outdoor painter. Dustin studied at the Art Students League of Denver from 2012-2019; and were mentored by notable artists Kevin Wechback and Ron Hicks
