My painting, Miss Rachel, has been selected for the Guild of Boston Artists' Regional Juried Exhibition. The show runs from October 3rd - 24th, with the opening reception scheduled from 3:00-5:00, this coming Saturday.
Thursdays, January 15th to March 12th (9 classes)
5:00pm - 8:00pm
Instructor: Emmy De Musis
The color study is a preliminary sketch that determines speciﬁc color mixtures and establishes, in the most simpliﬁed manner, the value range that will best achieve a light effect and create volume. An essential step of the painting process at the Academy of Realist Art Boston, this stage is subsequently used as an indispensable reference when completing a naturalistic painting.
At the end of this 9 week class, the student will take away a greater understanding of how to simplify planes, properly compose values and create color harmony, including the mapping out of temperature patterns. Day one will be dedicated to a basic lecture on terminology and concepts, an introduction to materials and a painting demo; thereafter, the class will work on four two week poses from the nude.
On November 20th from 6:00-8:30pm I will be doing a live figure drawing demonstration in the Tapestry Room at the Gardner Museum. This will take place as part of the Museum's Third Thursday event series and coincides with the exhibition currently on view in the Hostetter Gallery- Donatello, Michelangelo, Cellini: Sculptors' Drawings from Renaissance Italy.
Born in Boston, I traveled to Italy in 2008 to study drawing in Florence. Upon returning to the States in April of 2009, I enrolled at the Academy of Realist Art, Boston where I currently teach figure drawing and painting.
I am a graduate of Walnut Hill School for the Arts with a major in painting and hold a BFA in painting from Carnegie Mellon.
