October 9, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - October 23, 2023 @ 5:00 pm


Adults & Teens 15 and over – Min 2, max 8

Prerequisite: This is a series of three portrait drawing classes offered each month September through December, designed for beginners or those with some drawing experience who want further instruction. Take all three classes in each workshop or just the first drawing class. However, it is recommended to take all three as the first class will not end with a complete drawing. The series of three classes repeat each month. If you cannot make some of the dates, contact the instructor for options.

3-day portrait drawing workshops (One class a week over 3 weeks.)• Drawing tips and tricks: (The first date of each workshop) will cover the basics of drawing a portrait, beginning with composition and learning how to choose a good reference photo. You will learn how to draw the correct proportions of the face, mark making and different methods of transferring images to begin a drawing. Supplies needed will be discussed and tips and tricks for how different effects can be achieved in your drawing. • Starting a portrait: (The second date of each workshop.) Once reference images have been selected a drawing can be started. Instruction will go more in depth as to how to create details in a portrait, hair, features, shading, etc. • Fine tuning the final portrait: (The third date of each workshop.) Portraits done well take time, so this class is for finishing up the portrait drawing, if possible. Further instruction will be provided. Bring to class: For the first session, all supplies are provided. You may bring your own. Sessions 1 & 3 will be using graphite pencil and session 2 will be in charcoal. If possible, bring three or four reference photos of subjects you would like to draw. Printed copies, please, not just in your phone. If you don’t have a printer, contact the instructor ahead of time to print for you. A supply list can be provided. Reference photos provided.
