Portfolio Intensive

9:30 AM-4:30 PM
Ages 15 – 18
Gage Capitol Hill
Work with teens ages 15–18 to discover their own artistic expression while learning comprehensive skills in graphite, and charcoal by working from live nude models, master works and still life. The curriculum will utilize hands-on practice, classical drawing exercises instructor demos, critiques, slide presentations, and an off-site field trip to develop and inspire young artists. (Students will work with a nude figure model all 5 weeks.) Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of oil paint handling, color theory, figure painting, art history, and the importance of value. Through incremental exercises, demonstrations, and lectures, we will expand our understanding of how to use oil paint to actualize our creative vision.
