Over the course of 2 months artists will complete a minimum of 6 portraits from photo reference. We start with monochrome in order to focus on tonal values and we add color gradually as the program suggests.

Homework is assigned according to the level of each participating artist . Each week artists will submit images of their work for critiques.
