Students in this course will complete an expressive portrait in ink and watercolor using techniques developed by the teaching artist.


This course is designed to help artists of all levels consider the use of space, proportion, value, line, and rhythm in their portraits.

Students will receive instruction in drawing their portrait, creating depth and dimension using line and value, layering color, and applying lines expressively in ink.


Students can also expand their work into gouache (opaque watercolor) and/or collage.
