SU 2018 – Portrait Painting and Drawing

Venue: 1131 Mission Street

Portrait Painting and Drawing

This class is designed for students at all levels that are interested in exploring portrait drawing and portrait painting in oils. Learning how to use the Zorn palette or limited palette is the perfect introduction when dealing with the portrait or the figure as it helps us to keep values, colors and temperature under control and away from frustration. Ignacio is an experienced portrait artist and art teacher from Australia currently living in San Francisco.

Instructor: Ignacio Rojas, MFA

Dates: 4 class meetings / Mondays, July 23, 30, August 6, 13

Time: 6:30-9:30 pm

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.
