PORTRAITURE WORKSHOP September 11, 12 &
13, 2015 $250.00 includes model fee Featuring Artist Mary L.
Many of you will remember her as our presenter for our May
meeting where she demonstrated her skill at portraiture using our
David Phillips as model. Immediately following the meeting, several
members requested a workshop from Mary so be sure to sign up to save
your place. General information. As instructor, Mary's goal is to bring
to the student the basics of portraiture. Working in oil, the
class will cover the three fundamentals of painting: hue, value, and
Chroma. These fundamentals, along with the all-important drawing,
are the foundation upon which we will build the portrait. Schedule. 9 AM – 4 PM each day; bring lunch, order out, or pick up Friday: Introduction and demo from a live model. Saturday:
Students begin their own paintings from a live model, break for
lunch, and resume for the afternoon ending at 4:00. A brief critique
will enhance the learning process. Sunday: Continue individual
instruction and final critique at 4:00. More details in this pdf
