Teaching Digital Figure Painting Class at AAU, SF.

Recently I've had the pleasure of teaching a newer class at The Academy of Art University, SF called Digital Figure Painting.  The whole class draws and paints on some gorgeous new touchscreen Cintiqs from a live model in the center of the room complete with professional lighting.  Each class I am tasked with working with a nude model, setting up the class lights (in an creatively effective way which demonstrates the topic of the week), critique student work (in progress as well as homework), lecturing on the weekly topic, and demoing the various concepts on my computer for them which is relayed to a big screen they all see.   Below are a few of my class demos- mostly focusing on light and color:
