Learn Portrait Drawing
Taught by local artist Mark Anthony
This month we are pleased to have Painted Note Studio owner, Mark Anthony, teaching our K.E.Y.P.A.D. Workshop!
Designed for students who would like to explore the basics of drawing a portrait, this class is to familiarize students with the fundamentals of drawing: line, shape, shadow and light, proportions and perspective. Students will learn to improve their technical drawing skills through the process of developing a portrait. Contour, line, shading, highlighting, and understanding of facial proportions and capturing the individual's character will be some of the topics dealt with in this studio class.
This workshop is open to all teens ages 13-18 in the Greater Kingsport Area, Johnson City, surrounding counties and Southwest Virginia. The workshop will be held on Saturday, November 19, 2011 from noon - 4 p.m. in room 228 of the Kingsport Renaissance Center. Cost for this 4-hour intensive workshop is only $20.
Mark holds a B.F.A. in Studio Arts from James Madison University, produced a TV show in NC, is an activist for community building through the arts, has had 12 solo exhibits and 26 group showing and has sold work in 32 states.
