What you'll learn in this portrait drawing class:

This essential practice presents the ultimate challenge to the artist and once mastered, opens up a world of possibilities.

Whether you aim to become the next great portrait artist or just find joy in the process of drawing or painting, this course will set you on your path and will give you the tools you need to create a successful body of work!

In this course students will learn how to approach the

portrait from life.  The class will be broken down into 3 sections. The course will be condensed and intensive on the portrait.  We highly recommend you start at the beginning of the course for the entire one month period to build the basic foundation. 

Week one will introduce students to basic portrait construction.

Week two will be introducing students to the concept of form, understanding shape, value, and edge.

Week three and four will be a long pose using the basics taught during the first two sessions.

Refund Policy

Make-Up Policy: Students pre-pay all classes by the month or the quarter - it is a commitment that is made by the student and Kline Academy that insures your easel space will be held for you. If a student misses a class for whatever reason, and if a 24-hour notice was given to our office, as a courtesy, Kline Academy welcomes students to come to any other class while enrolled and if space is available, to do a "make- up." Make-ups are not owed to a student and have no monetary value, they are simply a courtesy extended by Kline Academy.

Please note you may only take a make-up class when you are enrolled for a least a month and may only be used within the dates you are enrolled. A make-up class may not be used in the class you are in or added on at the end of the session. Make-ups expire at the end of the year they were acquired in.

Refund Policy: We are not able to offer refunds for any class or workshop for any reason once they have been purchased. If you sign up for a class and need to miss some of the dates within the month you may be able to take advantage of our makeup policy (see above). Please note any changes made to enrollment may incur a $75 administrative fee.

My first time drawing portrait from live model. Teacher miguel and assistance were very helpful. The instructor very knowledgeable helped me understand shadows and blocking which I never thought anything about I always just started drawing, that is why my drawings were always off in some way. Very grateful to Miguel. Would gladly take class again for more structure from instructor. Great class.
