Portrait Painting 16 - Adult

In this course we will explore how to paint the portrait, referencing traditional techniques of the Old Masters. We will have two poses and work “alla-prima” with semi-opaque color. The emphasis will be upon capturing the likeness of the model and subsequently on refining the work. WeI will demonstrate how to achieve a convincing sense of three dimensionality using light and shadow mapping, how to model flesh using warm and cool colors, and how to maintain the integrity and structure of your drawing as you paint. Composition and the importance of the environment in which the sitter is placed will also be emphasized. A materials list is available from the office.

The Ageless Jazz Band supports CSMA by hosting periodic fundraiser performances, promoting the school in public performances, and through annual donations. PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER FOR THIS ONLINE ....
