"Creating a Portrait" Fun Art Class!!

One of Amalie's paintings
 in the style we will be learning.
On March 10 from 1-3 pm we will be hosting another life drawing class. This class is in conjunction with our Figure Show. 10$ Registration

About the Class

The objective of this class will be to teach a unique technique for creating a portrait. There are many schools of thought on how to draw or paint. This technique involves building the initial drawing based on building up shape upon shape of light. It requires you to trust your eye with intense observation of light and shadow. Then you add your medium of choice to the initial drawing.

Materials for the Workshop

Please bring the drawing materials you are the most comfortable working with. Ink, watercolor, paints, colored pencils or pen are some possibilities.
Also bring 2 – 3 images to work from. The photo should possess high contrast.

All experience levels welcome.
