What you'll learn in this kids painting class:

Before photography was invented, a portrait was the only way to show and record the appearance of a person. In the first half of the XX century, photography became the most accessible and popular media of traditional portraiture, bringing what was previously an expensive art for almost everyone. This way, photography freed artists from realistic depictions and many contemporary artists began exploring new ways to represent people.

It was (and is) a huge challenge. Now, these artists need to answer the question “How to draw a portrait that is different from the photorealistic representation?” This camp will help to understand contemporary portraiture and experiment with different ways of making one.

High-quality art materials provided.

Day 1. Intro. A brief history of portraiture. Anatomy and proportions. Quick realistic sketches. Sketching from different angles. Head 360.

Day 2. Grotesque and likeliness. Portrait as a persona. Stylized proportions. Emotions and poses. Different media. Using lines and shapes. Tonal drawing.

Day 3. Character design. Composition. Dynamic sketches. Portrait as a gesture. Simple expressive shapes. Collage technique. 

Day 4. Sculpting. Exxageration and parody. The credible and the impossible. Portrait as an animal.

Day 5. Final project. Using one of the learned techniques, we will create a portrait or a series of portraits.

They are curious and self-confident, open to new ideas, and certain about what they like. They are what many adult artists dream to be. We find it very important for young artists to know that Fine Art is not about just following step-by-step instructions. We teach them to create something brand new, using the endless resource of their imagination....
