Portrait by Janice Liu

Working from photos and our own faces, we’ll create portraits while learning techniques for working with acrylic paint. Emphasis will be on capturing accurate, recognizable likeness, and refining our knowledge of facial proportions.

Beginners and intermediate artists are all welcome! All supplies are included.
