Solving the Puzzle of Portraiture

During the one day Solving the Puzzle of Portraiture workshop, Tonja will help you to better understand how to draw the features that make up the human face. If you are timid when it comes to drawing people, and would like to gain confidence and learn to accurately draw a likeness, then this is the class for you! We will look at the basic anatomy and structural elements that are key in understanding how to represent the 3 dimensional components of the face in a 2 dimensional format.

In this two day workshop, we will focus on all things acrylic. This class is for beginning to advanced students who are interested exploring mixed media acrylic techniques with a portraiture focus. Together, we'll explore many different acrylic mediums and their potential applications to add interest to your acrylic portrait work. We will learn several traditional and non-traditional ways to use acrylic & acrylic painting mediums.
Our primary focus will be on on the portrait, learning to better understand and communicate the features of the face from 3-D to a 2-D platform.
