I love teaching people who have no faith they can paint – I love proving them wrong.

    Portraits Workshop is a 2.5 hour, 5 week class for students with some drawing experience to learn how to draw from their own photo references. Materials needed are very limited; the majority of the work will be done in pencil with the option to incorporate watercolor. The instructor will teach about supplies, her technique, each feature of the face, and composition. Students are encouraged to come to class with some ideas of how they'd like to portray their person. Demonstrations by the instructor are included. Models are not a part of this class.
