Event Series Event Series: Portrait Painting from References

April 25 @ 10:00 am - April 27 @ 3:00 pm

Many times, we use photographs or artwork we admire as the basis for a portrait painting out of necessity. On Day One of this workshop, we’ll review the basics of portrait painting in general, such as proportion, composition, and getting the most out of the reference, then paint the foundation on our canvas or panel. On Day Two, we bring the portrait to completion in harmony, color, and finishing strokes.

This is a working experience for acrylic and oil painters. Bring your image resources, painting surface, and paints. It is suggested that you have a working understanding of your materials. This workshop is limited to eight (8) artists.

Thursday, April 25th & Saturday, April 27th.
10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Creator Members $200/ Catalyst & Explorer Members $250 / Non-Members $290
