Every portrait has a story to tell. This class will focus on developing narratives within the portrait. We will work from live models in addition to students bringing in reference photos to use while painting. Prior portrait painting experience is required. Homework will be assigned at the end of each class to keep students in practice between classes. We will review and critique completed works of art together as a class to help the advancement of all students. Each student will also be responsible for an informal 5-10 minute presentation on an assigned artist which will happen at the start of each class. This class will be taught in oil and acrylic. If you would like to work in oils, please contact the instructor for a specialized materials list. There will be days when students are asked to bring in charcoal to draw preparatory sketches prior to painting. The model fee varies according to class size.
