PORTRAIT ILLUSTRATION: LEVEL ONE
In the two-hour Portrait Drawing Workshop, FIONA FLAHERTY, Nashville-based illustrator, letterer and designer, will teach new and more experienced artists marker coloring techniques and portrait drawing skills. In the first hour, students will learn how to use art markers, from mixing to creating texture. In the second half of the class, Fiona will teach basic facial anatomy, how to draw people, layout and composition techniques for portrait illustrations, and how to apply those just-acquired art marker skills. Fiona’s style is welcoming and free -- students will not be held to any traditional styling rules or restrictions. Workshop participants should bring any photo references they are interested in using (Fiona will have plenty of inspirational images as well) and plan to leave with new skills to create their own unique style of portraiture. Formally trained at Parsons the New School for Design in NYC and further experienced in LA, Fiona creates designs for companies and sells her own line of stationery and home goods.
You will leave with a beautiful portrait you illustrated yourself, ready to be framed! All materials are provided in this workshop.
The class will be held at Harlan Ruby.
Saturday 10, 10:30am-12:30pm. If you can make it, please come 30 minutes early (10am!) for snacks and mingling. Class will begin promptly at 10:30am.
