Faces: The Art of Portraiture

Faces: The Art of Portraiture

August 1 - 2, 2015; 2 days; 9am - 4pm

Jan Attridge
Founders Hall
Class Size:

Bring in a photo of your favorite subject and practice the art of portraiture. Jan will lead students through the Old Master techniques of gridding and observing proportions. Students will then use this approach with their subject of choice. The final drawing will be transferred to canvas and blocked in with raw sienna which, along with three other colors, allows for a full range of subtle flesh tones. By using this simple but effective method, students will end up with a life-size (12"x12") portrait and the tools to continue painting portraits. Prerequisite: foundational drawing and painting experience required.

This class will be cancelled Monday, July 27, 2015, if minimum enrollment is not met. Please register before this date.
