      This is a great workshop for those who have always wanted to paint people but feel intimidated. Lori will show you how to get more comfortable with the process and believes all the miles already logged on your brush are easily transferable to this subject. Students will be asked to bring their own photo reference and a completed contour drawing from which to work in class.

      The goal of the course is not rushing to complete a finished portrait but to offer
      specific tools and practices which can be taken home by students and added to their repertoire of skills on their painting journeys.

      In this four-day class, each day will start with a short visual presentation covering
      specific painting mechanics. Next, Lori will paint for the class on a completed
      drawing of her own while sharing her insights. During each day’s demo she will also touch on the ideas of listening to your own intuition, the many benefits of slowing down during the painting process, what makes a good reference photograph and drawing, and how to interpret rather than ‘copy’ from photo references.

      The balance of each day the class will paint and Lori will interact individually with each student.
