As I am finalizing my 2019 teaching schedule, I wanted to go ahead and open one that I am super thrilled to be teaching next year!
has shown a deep respect for offering space to teachers who share a rich understanding of portrait and
expression, so I was thrilled to be invited to head to the West Coast in May 2019.
My workshops are uniquely built to offer the painter the opportunity to question and formulate their own ideas of concept and technique. This one specifically will explore these learning curves:
Learning How To Combine Your Current Sketch Ability With A Dynamic, Expressive One
Learning Specific Techniques To Push Distortion Of The Figure
Learning How To Push The Use of Contrast To Convey Mood And Drama
Learning How To Define The Details Of A Portrait To Convey Story And Message
Learning How To Sketch Freely To Build Collage Elements In Unexpected Ways
To Capture a Pose or Light Field For Reference
This class is for the painter who is looking to dive deeper in to their own practice and push their love of portraits to more imaginative outcomes. We will work on paper and canvas, use materials in unorthodox ways, and learn strategies that will push out out of our comfort zone to reach distinct visual outcomes based on expressive portraits.
