Spring Class: Portrait Painting in Oils

Wayne Art Center, Wayne, PA

5 Weeks: April 26 to May 24
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

$130/ model fee included

Students will explore the art of portraiture through painting from the model in a series of long and short poses. As in the fall semester, we will approach color in terms of the relationship between direct light, ambient (indirect) light, and shadow. We will continue to focus on proportion, brushwork, values, and edges. In the spring we will be concentrating more on the idea or concept behind each painting. Students can continue to focus on the head, or they can include more of the figure in their portraits. Drawing experience is highly recommended; some experience working in oils is useful.
