5-Day Adult Portrait Painting Workshop with Artist Seth Haverkamp / Learning to Paint by Learning to See

August 27, 2018 @ 9:00 am - August 31, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

In this intensive 5-day workshop, students will concentrate on representing a portrait through large shapes with an emphasis on a simplified approach to creating a likeness. Working from a live model, students will begin painting the head with large shapes of value indicating where the features will be. Next, students will get a likeness of their subject by painting planes of the face and focusing on shadow shapes. By making large shapes progressively smaller students will begin placing simplified versions of the features until they have a fully developed portrait. The color palette will remain limited and students will see how to achieve many different “flesh” colors with very few colors on the palette. Minimum of 5 students, Maximum of 15 students
FEE: $570.00 for Booth Museum Members, $595.00 for not-yet-members
