Summer Session

Painting The Portrait (Summer)

8,500 kr

Instructor:  Per Olav Olsen

Through intense observation students develop their ability to reproduce an accurate visual impression of the model. Focus will be given to drawing and color mixing to be able to render the proportions of the head and facial features accurately and render human flesh in oil paint.

All painting supplies will be provided so you do not need to bring anything with you except perhaps something to take notes with.

The skills you acquire during your course can be applied directly to your continued artistic endeavours.
