Portraits in Oil (1 Week)

This Class is suitable for:

  • Summer Adults
  • Summer Teens

Times: August 19 - 23: 6-9pm

Cost: $340.00

Instructor: Meg Murray

This week-long workshop session will focus on an in-depth approach to portraiture in oils. Students will develop a dynamic composition for a potentially three-quarter length portrait with a subject of their choosing. The instructor will guide and encourage creative problem-solving and use of activated space within the portrait. We will examine examples throughout art history to inspire student work. Color exercises will help to challenge students to improve their skills in exploring and mixing skin tones. Over the course of the week, students will work on a roughly 24×36” surface, from beginning sketches to final touches.
