Class description

Painting a portrait from multiple sessions is essential for an artist’s growth. Through repeated observation, we begin to perceive subtle details and build rapport with the portrait sitter. This familiarity will eventually guide us to compose a genuine likeness inspired by a sense of the subject’s spirit and character.

Throughout the course, as we paint two to three pictures of different poses, there will be a good deal of one-on-one instruction with several demos including how to use photos to finish a painting. Each student will have digital access to images taken from their spot for work outside of class time if they so choose.
