Artists from all over the world are gathering for a weekend of unforgettable moments. Won't you join us? The Portrait Society of America is returning to Washington, DC for our 18th annual The Art of the Portrait conference, April 14-17, 2016.
Where can you go and see over thirty artists demonstrating , discussing techniques and methods, network with fellow artists from all over the world or have an individual artist-to-artist portfolio critique? Our annual conference offers all of this events and so much more.
You won't want to miss our opening night where 15 artists paint together in one room from live models, or the many other demonstrations, panel discussions, workshops and breakout sessions. Whether you are a professional full time artist or you desire to take your art to the next level, we have a program to benefit you.
As part of our ongoing mission to educate the public about the traditions of fine art portraiture and figurative works, the Portrait Society offers two types of scholarships.
First, the Gordon Wetmore Legacy Scholarship , awarded annually for a college or atelier student. This scholarship provides tuition, 1/2 of a shared room and a travel allowance. Second, we offer three tuition only scholarships for artists of at all levels of development to attend the annual conference.
