John Michael Carter: Creating a Compelling Composition Around the Figure

The class will paint from costumed models in environments with an emphasis on identifying the design and value patterns that creates a convincing figure and a compelling composition. Mr. Carter will work and demonstrate with each student individually according to their skill level.

Mr. Carter has been a frequent guest instructor at art workshops across the country, including the Scottsdale Artist School since 1990, the Dallas Art League and the Cincinnati Art Club. His thorough classical training and experience in drawing and painting gives him the technical expertise for superb instruction.

He is a master signature member of Oil Painters of America and serves on the board of directors of that organization – as it’s president.
