True learning begins when we slow down and work carefully, observing all facets of form, and recording them carefully. These 3-week (9-hour) portrait poses are designed to help slow down the student, help to learn to observe and translate what they see into solid imagery. This class will really help with likenesses and rendering, understanding half and middle tones, as well as understanding the importance of layering, and a build up of tones from the lightest to the darkest.

Video Archives will be available livestream students until Jan 2nd.
