Register for this Workshop

We will paint each day from the live model. Participants will create a basic palette from direct observation of the model, using oil paint, working on either canvas or panel (your choice). Participants will receive individual instruction as they develop two figurative paintings over the course of the week. We will emphasize the basic forms of the figure as well as value and light and shadow. Participants should arrive with two pre-tinted (and dry) canvases or panels, which will provide a ready-made ground upon which to build their paintings.



Forrest Williams is a figurative painter who has shown his work in San Francisco, New York, Portland, Montreal, and for numerous summers at Provincetown's AMP gallery. He was an English major undergrad at Davidson College and received his MFA in painting at the New York Academy of Art. He now lives and works in both New York City and Provincetown. This is his fifth summer teaching at the Fine Arts Work Center.
