This workshop focuses on an intuitive approach to portrait painting, supporting skills development through direct observation. Students will explore the fundamental concerns in painting such as chiaroscuro, colour relationships, paint handling, gesture and composition. Demonstrations in alla prima painting technique and visits to the galleries are major components of this workshop.
Materials for the first class are provided. Acrylic paints are required. Students will receive a list of required materials for the following classes.
This course meets in the AGO's Anne Tanenbaum Gallery School. Participants must be 18 or older. Space is limited
