WEEKLY ART CLASSES
PAINTING PORTRAITS & PEOPLE
Beginning Spring 2019 — Days & Times to be Announced — Lewisburg, WV area
“Secrets” used by Classical through contemporary portrait painting Masters are introduced and demonstrated, beginning with the proportions and structure of the head; establishing the light and dark masses; and portrait artists’ methods of rendering facial features. Over time, we will build upon this foundation and study selecting and mixing colors on the palette; layering and blending naturalistic skin tones on the canvas; capturing the warm, cool and neutral variations, and the transparency of the flesh; understanding and rendering folds and different materials of clothing in a painterly manner; interpreting the effects of light and atmosphere; alla prima brush and palette knife techniques; and helpful studio tips.
We reserve the right to refuse admittance to anyone. Please be considerate of other students and the teacher, and leave personal and political agendas at home. Thank you for your understanding.
