Discover how a portrait is so much more than simply recording proportions; instead, it can be one of the most expressive images you can create. Identifying the simple patterns and forms that are the basis for a well-designed portrait, students will learn through demonstration to use form, value, and line to develop expression. Students should bring a large photo (at least 8″ x 10″) from which to work. Photos taken in natural light with clear contrast are recommended. Instructor: Marjorie Perrin. Organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and funded, in part, by the Paul Mellon Endowment and the Jean Stafford Camp Memorial Fund.
Age: High school students and older. Meets in the Pavilion. $15 per student.
