3 Day Portrait Drawing with White Chalk
April 21 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The Classical Portrait with White Chalk
Saturdays 4:30-7:30pm April 21st-May 5th
Join us for a three day workshop where we will take you through the ins and outs of the wonderful medium, white chalk.
We will create a unique drawing from Master Portrait Paintings.
We will learn the basics of portrait drawing as we study and learn from the Old Masters.
Bring in your favorite portrait painting as reference or choose from our specially selected collection of Master paintings.
We will begin by making a thumbnail composition and value study. Then Terra and Maurilio will take you through, step by step, the process of working with white chalk.
White chalk and Graphite is an Excellent Intermediary Step From Drawing to Painting.
We will start with a toned paper, create our line drawing, add dark tones with graphite, and eventually our lightest tones with the white chalk, leaving the paper as the halftones.
Students are encouraged to bring their artworks home in-between lessons for further development.
Adults and Teens Ages 13+
