Drawing 101 - Portraits

Registration for this class is currently CLOSED.

Portraits might be one of the most intimidating things about drawing. The ability to capture likeness, expression, and then proportions… it’s hard! Unfortunately, there aren’t a set of magic rules to follow, since every face is so unique. BUT there are some really cool tricks and tools to use to help the portraits come to life.

I’d love to show you that portraits don’t have to be so scary! A few tricks and a lot of patience goes a long way.


Ages: 16 years and up - no experience necessary!

Materials: All supplies are included.

Instructor: Vanessa Frost

As a full time artist and owner of MUSEjar, Vanessa finds inspiration and joy in teaching art. Art is a language that is often forgotten about and it's amazing what happens once it's tapped into. Her background is fine art and film production, with a degree from The University of Vermont. She loves mixed media, and currently works mainly with acrylics, but she is constantly exploring and experimenting with all other mediums.

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.
