Create dynamic and bold figurative paintings in this exciting class. Working with nude and clothed models, students will explore quick studies to greatly improve their paint handling, and longer sustained paintings to fully realize their ideas. Special attention will be paid to constructing the figure with paint using simple shapes and colors, gradually building up vibrant colors with texture and saturation. By the end of camp, you will have the confidence and the knowledge to tackle your dynamic compositions. See you in class. Check the supply list before registering.

Julian Tejera

Born and raised in NJ, Julian Tejera has seldom gone a day without pencil in hand. Receiving his BFA in illustration from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in 2008, he worked as a freelance and portrait artist for a number of years. He later attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, graduating in 2015 with an MFA in painting.

While working at MAM, Julian discovered a passion for teaching, leading to the start of a career as a sought-after art instructor for teens and adults. 

His artwork seeks to draw the viewer into the quiet moments of his figurative subject matter, using strong design and technique to lead the eye around the picture plane and weave a visual narrative.
