Working from both live models and photographs, learn skills and techniques to create expressive portraits. Beginning with drawing we will use a variety of techniques and exercises: blind contour, tonal, gestural, measuring and graphing. Progressing to colour and wet media (acrylic) – students will learn underpainting, glazing and impasto techniques. Classes will include instructor demonstrations of technique and media, and examples of traditional and contemporary artists’ portrait work. Intermediate levels welcome.
