Capturing Character in Acrylic Portraits

with Chantel Barber, portrait artist

Wednesdays, June 6, 13, 20, 27  |  10:30am - 12:30pm

This four-class series is designed for the beginner, intermediate, or advanced artist. Learn to paint a portrait from reference photos without losing the energy and vitality of working from life. Students will learn about essential acrylic materials and how to use them, the ideal photographs for portrait painting and editing (what you leave out is just as important as what you keep in), color mixing, and techniques for capturing a likeness. Students are encouraged to bring their own photographs.

Space is limited; supplies are included. Registration is required. 

Members $175, non-members $195

To register, please call (901) 761-5250.
