Portraits with Charles Miano
There is no greater endeavor in painting then to capture the humanity and essence of a fellow human being in art. With truth and directness artists can communicate the consciousness, personality and spirit that they observe in others before them. In these informative sessions, participants will learn the classic techniques of Portraiture as practiced by many masters of the past. Artists will draw and paint the portrait from short poses to intermediate length poses with an emphasis on accurate observation. Both Direct and Indirect methods will be demonstrated and discussed as each approach informs the other.
Students will immerse themselves in important fundamentals of construction, anatomy, shapes, values, forms and edges in both drawing and painting. Intermittent full length demonstrations by Charles Miano will be a part of the course.
All levels of artists are welcome to attend.
