Terry Thacker, a Nashville-based artist and professor and chair of the fine arts department at Watkins College of Art, Design and Film, will lead this two-day intensive figure painting workshop. On Saturday, the program will begin with a discussion of the works on view in the Paint Made Flesh exhibition, with the focus on the way artists employ a wide range of painterly effects to suggest the temporal properties and cultural significance of human flesh. Participants will then move to the Frist Center studios where the discussion will continue during a figure painting session with a nude model. On Sunday, participants will continue working in the studio with the model.
