    "Conceptual Portraiture" by Anita Kunz
    $45.00 USD


    Kunz will explain her own creative process from cultivating ideas to using reference materials properly and legally. Then, she will move into conceptual portraiture showing tons of examples - including one conceptual portrait painting from start to finish in a set of 10 slides. In her own words:

    For this class I’ll be showing examples of portraits I’ve done, with explanations of how I came up with the ideas, and also how I utilized reference material to aid with the likenesses. It’s extremely important to use photography properly, both to understand the form and features of the face, and also to use the information in a photograph without infringing on the photographers copyright (lawsuits are rampant these days). Obviously it’s much better to use one’s own photograph from which to create an artwork, but often when an artist is commissioned to paint a famous person, only copyrighted photographs are available. The trick is to use the photograph properly.
    There will also be a Q and A period. - Anita Kunz

    "Sketchbook Clinic" by George Pratt and Carl Dobsky
    NOW ON DEMAND


    Developing your personal perspective: Methods, techniques, and theory to help you achieve a unique viewpoint.

    Sketchbooks have become an art form in an of itself. But I find, more and more, that students and professionals are having trouble getting their best work from the sketchbook into finished work outside of the sketchbook.

    A sketchbook, for me, has been a handy place to record observations about the world I live in, an ideation tool, journal/notepad and a launchpad for experimentation. I'll talk all of this and more, and give examples of, observational drawing, composition, etc. We will look at a variety of important solutions to getting the most out of your sketchbook, developing your mind and eye, improving communication, and achieving success in your finished works. - George Pratt

    Examples will be given of various artists' sketchbooks as well: Egon Schiele, Toulouse Lautrec, George Grosz, Eduard Thony, Ronald Searle, and more!
