Portrait Boot Camp (Ages 16+)

Portrait Boot Camp (Ages 16+)

This workshop will cover elements of portrait painting from start to finish for both oil and acrylic painters.  Artists will gain an understanding of not just what they think they see but what is really there.  The workshop will start with composition, move to color, and progress to putting everything together with the use of a live model.  Some knowledge of drawing will be helpful.  Tighten your boot strings and get ready to paint portraits!
