Explore the fascinating art of portrait drawing or painting! Beginners and intermediate students will work from a live model, focusing on observational skills and applying them to drawing what they see. Tom will give short lessons on the structure of the face and then will give help to each student as they spend the rest of the class drawing or painting. Students should feel comfortable in whatever medium they choose since the emphasis will be on the process of creating portraits.

Join us as we spend three sessions focusing on the creative and expressive use of the Elements of Art and Principles of Design. We will discuss the similarities and differences between representational, abstract and non-objective artwork.  Each class participant will experience the freedom of deriving the essence of subject matter through the subtle use of simplification, color, contrast and space. Class members will work with a wide variety of materials to generate new ideas and fresh approaches to their chosen subject matter. Demonstration swill be done in acrylic yet students are welcome to bring their own fluid media as well as canvas or paper.
