Service Description

This class will enhance student ability in drawing portraits. Students will absorb the foundational techniques of drawing someone’s portrait. Additionally, students will work on a master copy, reproducing work from the old master drawers, in order to help magnify skills within this genre of drawing. Through the use of multiple drawing materials, students will create self portraits in the final weeks of classes. No previous drawing skill is needed, but it is beneficial if the student has an interest in creating portraits! All materials (paper, pencils, color pencils, pastels and more) are included in the cost of the class. Maximum 3 students. Minimum 2 needed to run the class. If you have taken this course before, this class builds on previously learned skill sets and techniques. Class meets 6/21, 6/28, 7/5, 7/12, 7/19 7/26 Ages 12+ With a small ratio of teacher to student comprised of dedicated teachers and professors, the 4-student class size will be perfect to advance skill sets, while also being mindful of a safe environment.
