Portraits of Modern Life 

Session 1

Inspiration vs. Imitation. That’s what art is: taking an idea, combining it with other ideas and making a new work of art. 


You will learn:

·Acquire skills to “see” like a painter,

·Learn composition – traditional - contemporary

·Discover color palette set-ups

·Gain an understanding of brush strokes & brush sizes

·See the difference between styles and content  


You will study, evaluate and copy an artwork to produce your own incredible work of art. Select from a collection of works (provided) and copy the work stroke by stroke – live inside the mind of the artist that created the original.
