Portrait Painting and Drawing at Home
In this 6 week course you’ll be guided through creating an oil portrait from start to finish in a classroom style on Tuesdays, with either 10am or 1:45pm start time (or both!). Within 3 hours of your start time, you will schedule a personal, one-on-one critique with the instructor. You’ll receive portrait reference material, weekly instruction through video demonstrations, and individual feedback. We’ll cover essential principles from likeness and dimension to flesh tones and features. Students have the option to draw.
