Course Description
Mr. Halstead explains basic methods of drawing and painting in a “nuts and bolts” manner and with the goal of helping each student tailor-make a hybrid method that suits the student’s natural way of working. In one-on-one conversations and occasional, brief class lectures, Mr. Halstead guides students in the use of tonal values (the gray scale) to create the illusion of form and space as well as balanced, effective compositions. He also teaches color in a practical rather than theoretical manner, providing basic color combinations for flesh, instruction in the manipulation of warm and cool colors in relation to each other, and information about how colors interact when they are mixed. Students work from models.
