My Creative Future: Portraits

Dates: November 5th to December 12th
Days: Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Thursdays
Time: 5:30 pm  – 8:00 pm
Cost: Registration, materials, and subway fare are provided at no cost.

Portrait will explore all stages of creating a portrait, from quick charcoal sketches to painted conceptual representations. Creatively and thematically, participants will not be limited to a face on a page. The course will examine various definitions of what a portrait is and what it can be: introspective, diverse, and interpretative. Participants will create three finished pieces: a charcoal drawing, a pencil sketch, and a portrait in paint. Each piece will be presentation-quality for inclusion in a portfolio.
