Narrative portraits document our shared experience as humans. They share stories that come from both personal experiences and the imagination of the painter. In this course, students will draw and paint from both live models and photographs they take of models. We will begin with drawings to warm up, followed by a session of photographing the model for use in a photo transfer process, which will be covered step-by-step. Students will also have the opportunity to experience a long-form portrait process, working with a model for a three-week period to create preparatory sketches, color studies, underpaintings, and finally a completed portrait. Each student will be assigned an artist to research and present during the semester to their classmates. This class is for both oil and acrylic painters with painting experience.
