Portrait Painting Workshop

Over the weekend of September 14-16, Charles will be conducting a workshop hosted by the Fayette Art Center & Gallery at their new location on the square in historic Fayetteville, Georgia.

"Painting the Portrait from Life" will begin with a morning demonstration, followed by a full weekend of focused instruction.

"Open to all levels, this challenging workshop approaches portraiture in a progressive way, culminating in the student developing a portrait painted from life. The student will be exposed to the principles of composing the subject on the canvas, developing the picture concept and building the head from the inside out."

The fee is $240 plus a $30 model fee. A supply list and directions will be provided to each student upon registration. Contact the Fayette Art Center to register: 770-631-2780 or via email FayetteArtCenter@bellsouth.net. Visit their webpage located at www.FayetteArtCenter.com.
