2020 The Art of the Portrait Conference - Live Webinar

August 27-30, 2020

We are excited to share with you the full online webinar agenda of programs and events and the complete list of The Art of the Portrait faculty.


The conference will be offered this August as an Online Webinar event. The Portrait Society has taken steps to re-imagine the safest and best way to continue to provide educational content through the generosity of artists who donate their time and sharing of knowledge to our members. Faculty artists will be offering all levels of guidance and instruction as well as a diverse group of styles and approaches.


If you have attended in the past, we welcome you to explore this new way of learning with us, OR if you have been unable to attend or prohibited by travel, this event was made just for you!
