"Painting Portraits of People or Pets"
Wednesdays, May 19 - June 23, 2021
 

Whether you have always wanted to try portraiture or have years of experience drawing/painting people or animals this class will help you discover more of your own style while learning some time-tested techniques for simplifying and expressing yourself as a portrait artist. All of us have been looking at people’s faces our whole lives. Yet, rendering them as an artist involves seeing faces in a new way. Going beyond line drawing to shapes and shadows, use of chiaroscuro, color accuracy, and overall design composition this class will help you on your journey to creating truly 3-dimensional portraits that are alive and vibrant.
