Do you ever get bogged down with all the details in a face? Are you overwhelmed by the thought of painting a portrait? Make every stroke count! Intentional strokes can define and give mood to a painting without being overwhelming. Mia will help students think about each stroke of a painting and how it can help to structure, define, and carry a portrait. Students will be encouraged to take their time as they paint, considering what they do much before they actually put brush to canvas. We will have 2 portrait models each day, and students will leave with 4 small portrait studies by the end of the weekend. There will be a one-hour lunch break each day. Feel free to bring your own lunch or enjoy plenty of dining options in our southside neighborhood.
