Designed for novice artists ages 14 to 17, this acrylic painting class introduces the history of portraiture, starting with the Old Masters. Students will spend time in the galleries sketching, drawing from live models, and exploring photorealism in preparation for the creation of their own portrait paintings that remix their favorite subject and era.
