Urban Painting Club
Meeting I: The Outside Figure With Brooks Frederick

Sessions Hours: 
Session 1: 10 AM - 12 PM , Session 2: 1 PM - 3 PM
Registration fee: $50 members, $70 nonmembers

Re-situating painting as a social practice, Equity Gallery introduces a guided painting group open to all levels of practitioners interested in working communally. For its inaugural session, staged in the gallery’s courtyard, participants are invited to explore working directly from the clothed figure in an outdoor setting. Flexible “opt-in” instruction will be applicable to both representational and abstract painting approaches and will include demonstrations and an end of session critique. Color and spatial relationships will be considered in addition to planar construction and tonal modeling through direct observation. Participants interested in working on their own and/or taking advantage of the life model, and a community of fellow artists, are welcome to attend any portion of the morning or afternoon sessions. Recommended materials list available upon request. For further information, contact
