"Conceptual Portraiture" by Anita Kunz - This WEDNESDAY!! 12/16/2009!! $45!!"Conceptual Portraiture" by Anita Kunz
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

Anita is a fountain of knowledge, both about making the art, and handling yourself as a business person. This class is a no-brainer if you're interested in illustration in any context!

I have been having a blast attending all these classes. Every year I get older and thankfully a little smarter. Every time I hear another artist speak about their work new things stick to my grey matter. I feel my perspective has changed just a little and for the better. MOM, learning IS fun!
Anita has made my world spin around many times (in a platonic she has been my art hero for years and years kind of way). She is Canadian, but don't let that fool ya, she will kick your @#$ in a critique. Smart, tough and incredibly talented (or rather motivated,obsessive, passionate as I think these attributes are what make up talent) Anita will make your world shift a little too. BE THERE IF YOU CAN!

I second Jon's post! I can't get enough of these classes! Anita's class will be icing on the cake.
Anita's classes are always insightful. Her critiques are really to the point and she's so damn good at nailing down the problem areas of a piece and offering helpful ways to fix them, from concept to finish. You'll never get a better ass kicking from a sweeter person.
I'll definitely be at this class! Anita's insights into conceptual portraiture will demystify the entire process. How to do this with a little reference (which can be hard to come by when doing celebrities) and building something that's your own. She's a master at this, and she'll discuss everything from concept all the way through execution, as well as sound business practices and copyright law, etc. She does this at the Academy and you can hear a pin drop.
I'll be there with bells on and I hope to see many of you there as well.

I have watched 3 workshops. I think they are great and I hope this stops people trying to steal dvd's.
Atm the workshops are a little pricey, I understand why but along the lines of a community spirit maybe the price could decrease if more people signed up?
Well done to concept art.

Not sure where to ask this so if I need to post elsewhere please advise.
Because of schedules and work load I don't have opportunity to attend the online sessions as I would love to.
Is there an option to securely purchase and download a video or order a dvd of these online sessions after the fact? I didn't see any available in the concept art store.
Surely everyone doesn't have to be penalized because of a few thieves and pirates. There are many places on line that do this, so there must be a way.
