Monochrome Portrait

Adults

Saturdays, 1pm-4pm

July 14-August 11 (5 sessions)

Cost: $200 + $35 model fee

This beginners course will teach students how to build a portrait with basic but foundational techniques.  First, the course will cover the appropriate uses of dots, linemarks, and simple shapes in creating portrait outlines.  Students will then build on those outlines with tones and values.  Finally, we will learn how to look at each portrait in its full composition to unify the painting.

 

Instructor: James Jiang

Loosening Up!  Alla Prima Drawing For Kids

 

Young students of all levels will learn the fun, loose process of creating Alla prima drawings (drawings done in one day) by practicing from master copies, reference photos, and still life in an impressionistic manner. Working loosely allows students to play with abstraction as well as realism to create finished drawings. Everyone will learn how to draw while exploring their creativity!

Instructors: Morgan Laplante (with Timothy Rees)

Ages 7-17

Thursdays 4:15-6:45

July 12- August 2 (4 sessions)

Cost: $100
