Class Description: During this 6-week Portrait Painting course, you will learn how to analyze the structure of the head,  techniques to locate the features and  how to see value. Value is the noting of light and shadow, which is necessary to create 3-dimensional form in a realistic way for any subject matter. You will create an underpainting by simply using burnt umber, in order to block in the form and note the value. With this approach you can work out all of the general challenges such as proportion and gesture, while noting the position of the facial features. This will all be done before adding color. We will learn how to create the various flesh tones, as it relates to the value of the features and facial structure by using a limited palette.Note: Sessions will include a live model

Supply List: Art materials will need to be purchased prior to class.
