Virtual: Animal Portraits Workshop Beginning November 30

Create a portrait of your favorite animal or pet. Students learn to grasp the essence of an animal, then discover how to promote the characteristics of their animal on canvas using primarily acrylic paints. The goal is to produce artwork that best captures your animal in a whimsical or realistic depiction.

The many styles of animal portraiture are covered from abstract to realistic. Collage and other materials are also demonstrated and discussed as possible additions to your artwork.
