Portrait Painting Classes
Tuesday and Wednesday Mornings

By popular request, I have alternated the schedule to include blocks of classes that will focus on portrait painting.  The first three classes will be working on studies of portraits, either from photographs or busts.  The last three classes will focus on painting from the live model.  The model fee is included in the class fee, and a minimum number of students will be required to hold the class.  Each class will start with a 30-45 minute demo.
