Portrait Workshop Intensive
Sculpt for 3 days, Paint for 2 days!
June 16-20 
9 am-4 pm
$650 -includes model fees

Get 3-D structure in your Portrait Paintings! Designed for all levels of ability, this innovative workshop aims to bridge the gap between sculpture and painting.  Mon-Wed the class will sculpt a life-like portrait bust, working from the model.  Thurs and Fri, students will have the opportunity to paint the same model in oils, making a direct connection to lessons learned in clay. 

A professional portrait painter and figurative sculptor, Rick Casali offers a unique approach to teaching the Portrait.  Each day will consist of several demos by Casali addressing the forms of the head, anatomy of the features, and specific proportions of each model.
