SU 2017 – Portrait Painting Workshop

Venue: 1131 Mission Street

Portrait Painting Workshop 

This workshop is designed for students at all levels that are interested in exploring portrait drawing and painting. Students will begin by learning the fundamentals of the anatomy of the head, how to create form and recognize the planes of the head in a charcoal drawing. In day two, students will learn how to manipulate oil paint by exploring a limited palette that provides the perfect base for accurate tones and likeness. Students will then explore the process of creating of self portraits, working with a mirror and photographs. Basic materials are provided and a short additional materials list sent out upon registration. All experience levels welcome!

In response to the current COVID-19 situation, we require that all persons continue to wear masks at all times when in the Root Division space. For the safety of our students, artists, and extended community, we also require all students to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or same-day negative test results) for entry to classes held indoors at Root Division.

You may bring a physical copy of your vaccination card or via digital download through the State of California Digital Vaccine Record Portal here. (You may also provide a negative test result taken before each class session. Please contact us with any questions about the types of test results accepted.)

We ask this as a show of community care and a move towards continued safety while gathering in-person.
