$120 for 4 weeks

Deadline for registration is 7 PM on the day before the first class. Any registrations received after 7 pm the night before the first class of the session will receive the pre-recorded video of the first class (or classes missed if session already began). Be sure to include your email address.

Would you like to learn how to paint a self-portrait? Or a portrait of a family member? Lois Woolley will show you how from beginning to end, from posing and lighting to knowing when your portrait is “finished”. The demonstration of a head and shoulders portrait continues over a 4 week period. Commentary will include analysis of the subject’s planar structure, facial anatomy, and the color relationships observed. You’ll learn to show the form, features, skin tones, and expression that you want to capture in your subject.

Students will be asked to do a portrait of their own choosing at home, doing work each week based on what was taught in the class. Critiques of students’ works will be done at the end of each class.

Wednesdays 1 PM: November 4, 11, 18, December 2
