Portrait Essentials 003
Could painting and drawing the portrait be easier to grasp if it were to be broken up into smaller components? That is exactly what this class is about. Using a variety of materials such as construction paper, charcoal, and acrylic paints, participants will be introduced to new approaches and concepts that will allow them to simplify and draw or paint the portrait with much ease. There will be frequent one on one critiques, demonstrations, and group critiques which will strengthen and solidify every participant's knowledge on this fun subject.
