Come learn from master realist artist Casey Childs in his personal studio during two back-to-back workshops. We will begin with a 2-day Portrait Drawing Workshop focusing on building a stronger foundation in traditional portraiture. Students will work from a live model to create a convincing, lifelike portrait in charcoal. The Portrait in Oil will occur during the last three days of the week and will cover key concepts including construction of the head, light & shadow, shapes, values & edges, studio practices and proper use of materials using oils. These workshops are open to artists of all skill levels interested in improving their ability in traditional charcoal drawing and oil painting. We highly recommend taking them together as the foundational skills learned during the Drawing Workshop will also be utilized in the Oil Portrait Workshop.
