Portrait Painting: Online

In this workshop course, students will learn how to paint portraits that capture likeness and explore stylistic, narrative, and psychological expression. The course will include instruction on composition, brushwork, color, value, texture, and a range of painting materials and techniques, as well as continuous discussion of portraiture’s historical and contemporary significance.

We will look at examples of portraits by diverse artists in art history as well as artists working today, including Toyin Ojih Odutola, Kerry James Marshall, Alice Neel, Max Beckmann, David Hockney, Amy Sherald, Lubaina Himid, Nicole Eisenman, Titus Kaphar, and Jordan Casteel, and will recontextualize examples of artists' work that have been excluded by/included in the Eurocentric art historical canon. Students will have opportunities to paint from life, from references, and from imagination, and the course will incorporate slide presentations, demonstrations, and critiques of student work.

Workshop is offered online and runs for six weeks from July 5 until August 9.
