In this class, we will be studying the cat. Students will learn about basic anatomy, gesture, fur patterns, how to get a good photo reference, form and function, and so on. The aim is to get painters confident whether they are adding a cat to a landscape or still life or doing a portrait.

Topics included in the course will be:

  • Photographing the uncooperative animal
  • Selecting the right references
  • Basic anatomy and where to begin your drawing or painting
  • Expression and gestures
  • Fur patterns and color
  • Getting a likeness

Demos will be in oil and sharpie. We will spend time getting good photographic reference material and sketching from life. Students should bring painting gear, iPhones or iPads or digital cameras, and it is also recommended to bring some photos they have already taken.

We are delighted to announce that RiverArts has partnered with the Kent County Humane Society, who will bring adoptable cats to class as adorable, furry models.
