***Please note if signing up for a drop in class, we do not guarantee that you will finish your project in one sitting. Single one-off classes are offered as fun taster sessions & are not meant to substitute for a full study in your chosen subject. As with all art it is not about the end result, but more about the journey, so if you don’t finish your project in one session, you can always book another session with us or finish your project at home! For a more comprehensive learning experience in your choice of media, we highly recommend signing up for a full Class PKG.

CLASS SYLLABUS: Learn how to capture expressive portraits of your favorite people in this beginner-intermediate painting class. In the first few weeks you will gather the tools, materials and set up to devise portraits in a personal expressive way. Our course will begin with preliminary drawing exercises to study the human face- how to capture the placement of features and the proper proportions of full frontal, head straight on & other positions-three-quarter & profile views to achieve likeness with realism, or re-create diverse portraits through abstract forms. As we move into painting pour subjects, we will demonstrate how to organize your color palette, how to mix color for perfect skin tones using suggested color recipes. We will work step by step on each feature: eyes, nose, lips, ears, hair etc with exploratory work in how to evoke emotion through light, color, texture or brushstroke. Taking inspiration from past or present artists, we will learn how to employ these tips into our own work. In the last few weeks, complete personal paintings in your chosen subject matter incorporating the techniques & special effects you have learned. We encourage each student to execute their vision with flair and daring to create through personal expression. Students will be guided each week with individual personal critique.
