Portrait Workshop and demonstration @ Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art

  • VMOCA 2200 Parks Ave Virginia Beach, VA 23451 United States (map)

Five day portrait workshop. First half of the week students practice shorter studies consisting of drawing with paint to work out proportion, structure and basic anatomy, develop the form with value and fleshtones and color studies. All this leading up to a 2 1/2 day long pose where students learn how to build a painting from the ground up and how to work toward the 'finish'. Instructor will teach with demonstrations and at the students easels and will conduct a two hour portrait demonstration Sunday before the workshop.
