Workshop Description 

The art of portraiture dates back to ancient Egypt and continues today in traditional and unconventional forms of representation.  During our week together we will explore a variety of approaches to portraiture, depicting the likeness and personality of our subjects while developing technical skills and personal styles. Students will work from direct observation and photo reference, exploring a variety of media in quick studies and more sustained drawings. Instruction will focus on dry media – pencil, charcoal, conte, colored pencil and pastel but students are invited to bring additional materials of their choice. Throughout the week we will look at the work of other artists, have group discussions and one-on-one critiques.
