Beyond the Cute Face: Children as Timeless Subjects ~ Anna Rose Bain
November 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm EST
Children have been the subjects of works of art for centuries, but artists often struggle with paintings that look too sweet or nostalgic rather than powerful and timeless. In this presentation, Anna will discuss ways to implement design, narrative, color choices, and expression in order to create a child's portrait that will stand the test of time.
Beyond A Likeness ~ Michelle Dunaway
December 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm EST
Some paintings are masterfully painted but others speak both to the mastery of medium and the elevation of the spirit. During this presentation, we will discuss the importance of utilizing the technical qualities in portraiture to achieve the higher artistic goal of an authentic representation of our intention as the composer of the work of art.
