Studying the portrait is foundational to any traditional art education. A wealth of knowledge is gained by the close observation of the face and the personality behind the likeness.
Lessons 1 – 3: Jessica Henry will focus on capturing movement, accurate values, and developing a concept, thereby creating real art, not a mere likeness. These three classes will feature a live model and students will be encouraged to also set up a model in their own studios and will be taught how to set up with lighting and make their model comfortable.
Lesson 4: Daniel Hill Riedel will teach students how to develop a portrait from a photo, discussing working out the challenges and creating lifelike portraits utilizing Daniel’s technique.
Lesson 5: Richard Stergulz, internationally recognized portrait artist will be our guest instructor.
All portrait videos will be in oil paints.
