The Masked Portrait in the Landscape

Instructor: Heidi Harrington
July 9 – August 13, 2020 · Meets: Th · 09:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Age: Adult Courses (Ages 18+)

This outdoor class, based in the grounds of Silvermine School of Art, will look at the portrait in a landscape. As a sign of our current climate, the masked portrait will become a historical reference point in time. There will be a short lecture with big diagrams on a weekly theme such as tone, composition, eyes, foreheads, hands as well as the landscape that surrounds the portrait. There will be critiques of any work from home or the class that you wish to discuss at the end of each class. This course is suitable for all levels.
