DESCRIPTION OF LESSONS
I’m so excited to share my process with you! I break down each step so it is for all levels, beginning to advanced! The class begins by developing your reference image. You will learn different ways to create an image when you don’t have access to models or fashion photography. We will look at my extensive photo collection together I will show you how I combine the photo I choose with a tulle skirt I happen to have in my closet. You will learn how to use modern technology like an ipad to combine the two and other options if you don’t have access to the technology. You will also learn how to take a photograph you’ve found online and change it into a black and white image using simple photo editing we all have on our computers.
After creating our image we will transfer it onto the canvas by using a projector. If you do not have a projector this same step can be done with the traditional grid method.
We will create two paintings, one large and one small. I will show you my technique for mixing grey scales directly on the canvas and rendering the figure as well as different textures and patterns found in fashion. I love watching my image come to life on the canvas and take on the appearance of an actual photograph. Come paint with me and you will too!

MEET CINDY PRESS - ARTIST/INSTRUCTOR
The work of Cindy Press celebrates women by exploring the connection between our physical bodies and personal identity. Inspired by fashion, photography and popular culture Press references personal issues, sexuality and gender as a central theme in her work.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Press is a graduate of Moore College Of Art And Design. Being a fashion illustration major at Moore prepared her for decades of success in the fashion design world. She went onto work with artists such as Peter Max, an iconic painter of the 60’s and 70’s, interpreting his artwork into wearable art.
By merging her knowledge of fashion, the human figure, her life as a woman, mother and artist Press’s artwork forms a narrative that speaks to both men and women. Her female characters are inspired with an array of human emotion that goes beyond gender or age. She does not objectify the subjects of her paintings and drawings but instead seeks to capture their drama, confidence, sex appeal and charm. Press likes to emphasize the provocative, challenging the viewer to think even if it makes them uncomfortable.
Her style is heavily influenced by contemporary fashion photography from the 60’s to present time. While her signature is the way she transforms black and white oil paint on canvas Press likes to surprise with the occasional sprinkling of color added to the mix. Her process is evolving as she photographs her own subjects and merges them with new images to create the reference for her work.
Press’s work has been exhibited worldwide and is in private collections around the globe in major hubs such as New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London, Sydney, Dubai and Hong Kong. Some of her clients include Bloomingdales, The Four Season’s Hotel, The Thompson Hotel Group and AIDA Cruise Line.
