Drawing Faces Intensive Refresher

Even though you know know how to draw a face, life can interrupt your art and all those good foundations get a little rusty. This class will get you up to speed and help you take your portrait drawing to the next level!

This workshop emphasizes placing and drawing the
features of the face accurately, including:
• How to analyze light and shadow, and create a light effect.
• How to map the features of the face.
• Common errors in portrait drawing.
Both the morning and afternoon sessions will include demos covering the principles of drawing a face and hands-on experience drawing from sculptor’s casts and a live model.
Ages 14 and up. Drawing experience and Suzann’s “How to Draw Faces” class suggested but not required. Class will break for an hour midway, you may bring a lunch or eat/get takeout from one of the cafes close to Wet Paint.

About the artist: Whether painting a commissioned portrait, a figurative piece, or a “portrait” of a single rose, Suzann has the unique ability to capture the essence and spirit of a subject and combine it with masterful likeness. Her inspiration and passion comes from the classical old masters, and she is particularly influenced by the Russian painters of the 19th century. Intrigued and motivated by the depth and craft of masterworks hundreds of years old, Suzann works to understand classical methods and disciplines and leverage them with contemporary practices and sensibilities to create representational realism. Suzann Beck holds a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Moorhead State University, Moorhead MN, and studied portraiture with atelier-trained painter Judith Anthony, Plymouth, MN, and classical glazing technique portraiture with Jeffery Hurinenko, St. Paul, MN. Suzann serves as the Minnesota Ambassador for the Portrait Society of America, and teaches portrait painting and drawing classes in her Northeast Minneapolis studio and the Paramount Center for the Visual Arts, St. Cloud, MN. http://www.mnartists.org/suzannbeck
