Portrait Painting Series

colorful portrait painting of a laughing girl


MARCH 9TH, 16TH, 23RD, & 30TH. 

Drawing a portrait can be intimidating, so it's assumed that painting one is evening harder, right? Well, that is not true! The goal for this class is to teach you how to use light and color to bring a portrait to life. We will use simple shapes and color blocking to deconstruct the portrait of your choice. These will not be traditional portraits, your color palette is your own. The surfaces will not be small, so we will focus all 4 sessions on one face. 

Instructor: Vanessa Frost

Ages: Adults - no experience needed

Materials: Please come prepared with an 8x10 color printed photograph of whoever you'd like to paint. All other supplies are included.

NOTE: All classes require a minimum number of students to run. Please sign up in advance to help avoid cancellation due to low registration. In the case of a cancellation you will be notified prior and receive a full refund. Please read our class policies.
