5 week workshop: Demystifying the Portrait Painting!!⁣

Kline Academy Of Fine Art,  Los Angeles 👁👃🏼👂👄


5 Sundays April 21 - May 26 (No class 4/28), 11am - 3pm 


Painting a portrait is rewarding and fun but can be overwhelming if your comprehension of the facial structure is lacking.   In this class we will deconstruct the portrait.  Each week we break down each facial features, focusing on the structure of the individual parts: the skull, eyes, nose, ears and neck..  We will work from hand outs and photo reference each week but The last day we paint from a live model.  Using the knowledge acquired from the last classes you will have a better understanding of the design and structure of the face and how the parts that fit together.


Each week in this in depth workshop you will break down facial features, focusing on the structure of the individual parts. You will work from references and the live model.

All levels OK!

Painting from life and frolicsome fun!

(Kline Academy)

In this exclusive class you will learn how to use simple but alluring Alla Prima (wet on wet) painting techniques combined with other unique methods to create a polished composition with photo references. This class is fitting for students who are interested in bridging figure or portrait painting into narrative personal work.  It is designed for students who wish to construct complex/personal paintings based upon classic, archetypal (or contemporary) compositions.  

Special attention will be given to composition, design, and the interpretation of visual cues using art historical references, lighting, strategic props, and visual psychology. You will be guided through lecture, demonstrations, one-on-one instruction, and group discussion to develop and create well-organized images
