Eddie Filer to teach painting and drawing through Continuing Education

Nationally known artist Eddie Filer will teach a series of eight-week classes on the art of painting and drawing through the Galveston College Continuing Education department, beginning Aug. 30.

In Basic Portraiture 1 and 2, students will learn to recognize changes in the face from light to dark, variations of value changes in color, warm and cool temperature changes in paint, large to small comparisons of planes in the face, and building three-dimensional forms of the human head.

Filer will also teach his way of obtaining a likeness through seeing negative to positive spacing, by distance relating with a focus on the development of learning to see.
