SUMMER 2020 ONLINE CLASSES: Tap into your creativity right from your home in an online Art School class! We're offering live, online classes in drawing, painting, ceramics, and more, taught by our wonderful Art School faculty in real time. Capacity is limited to ensure small class sizes so you can maximize your time with your instructor and your classmates. You'll learn together in community with your fellow students, with additional opportunities for one-on-one time and individual feedback from your instructor, just like in our in-person classes!
Portraits are the most personal of paintings. In this class, you will learn the basic proportions of the head, and how to capture the likeness, planes of the head and mix flesh tones. The instructor will lead you, through demos and individual instruction , from the first drawing, through the one color underpainting, to the fully formed full color result. Use your own photos or those provided. Work in acrylic or oil. Some prior experience in drawing and painting recommended.
The face is a nexus of communication, containing the essence of mood, personality, and identity. Expand your visual acumen through study of the face's proportions. Work in acrylic and/or oil directly from a live model or personal photographs. Learn to render the contours, volumes, and details of the head, creating a realistic likeness and dimensional form. A prior introduction to drawing or painting is recommended.
