Pictures of People: The Art of the Portrait: Ages 6 - 10

"Nothing in a portrait is a matter of indifference. Gesture, grimace, clothing, decor even – all must combine to realize a character." - Charles Baudelaire

During this 10 week class we'll dive into the art of portraiture.  What is a portrait?  What does it show?  What details can we depict to show the essence of a person?  How can we create them with different medium?  This course was inspired by the powerful presidential portraits of the Obamas, so we'll start there.  We'll analyze the "gesture, grimace, clothing, and decor" of these images in addition to others and use our conversation as a catalyst to create portraits of ourselves and portraits of others through photography, drawing and painting, collage, and clay. Th 3:45- 4:45pm. 10 Weeks, $300 + $35 material fee for disposable camera and film developing.
