This 3–day workshop focuses the steps needed to create a rendered portrait drawing from a live model. Participants will be taken through a number of shorter poses in order to acquire and practice the important preliminary steps and to break down the process. A long pose is then set for the second part of the week. Materials and techniques are covered, as are important drawing fundamentals such as form, value (or tone), shape, contour, line, etc. Students of all levels are welcome.
Each participant gets lots of one-on-one attention from our superb instructors. ARA instructors teach year round so, unlike many artists who offer summer/holiday workshops our instructors are professional teachers as well as successful award-winning artists Whether you are an award winning experienced artist or have never painted before, our instructors will tailor to your skill level.
If you have any questions or are having trouble with online registration, please contact us.
Most workshops are scheduled five days per week, Monday to Friday, with weekends free (unless otherwise noted). The hours are usually 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., but will occasionally go to 5:00 p.m.
