During this informative six week workshop, students will explore the art of painting the portrait from life. Students will be working alongside Kai in his studio, with only a limited number of students, allowing for a closer and more educationally intimate setting. This workshop is primarily about painting the head in a convincing, representational manner. Initially, emphasis will be placed on shape and tonal relationships. The class will focus on creating a portrait from the early stages of setup to the finishing strokes. Students will be working with both live models and photos while they are guided through various ways of handling oil paint in order to create a finished piece. Students are also free to bring in works of their own to be critiqued by Kai, although this is optional. 


Students can expect instructor demonstration at the start of each class as well as plenty of individual attention. All experience levels welcome. This is a 6-week course, and the class will meet on Saturdays. Classes are only limited to 8 students.
