SPRING forward with a Portrait Painting Workshop
- Portrait Painting Workshop with Robert Maniscalco
- sponsored by the Mt Pleasant Art Guild
- April 25-27, 2017 10am – 4 pm.
- The workshop will be at the artist’s studio at 5440 Ansley Trail, North Charleston 29418.
- $190 for 2 days or $270 for three days plus model fee (depends on number of participants)
In these sessions we will explore value-based “light on form” painting methods to create expressive, professional level portraits. We will paint two finished portraits in our three days together. You can enroll in two days or all three days. Robert will also present a few salient drawing and painting exercises in the morning sessions. Using live models, the focus will be on gaining a deeper understanding of observable values to achieve form, character and likeness. Robert will teach you to think like a painter, presenting a short demo, paint-along style. Honest observation and abstraction of forms will be the key. Concrete, practical application, rather than meaningless theory, will be the order of the day. The instruction will be tailored to allow for a deepening of the individual’s unique approach and response to the subject at hand. Expect lots of individual attention and nothing less than a major epiphany regarding how the subtle manipulation of light on form actually works in depicting realistic subjects. See class and workshop description for more of what we’ll be discovering together. Expect lots of individual attention here. (843) 486-3161. Here’s my Materials List
