Join Gerard Mignot in this beginner-friendly class and learn how to paint a portrait with acrylic!

Guided by Gerard, you will learn the expressive portrait technique, which uses only a few fast and loose brushstrokes to capture the likeness of a person. It refers to a style of painting in which the artist aims to represent a way of feeling or seeing.

This workshop will help you to understand the structure of a face in term of shapes, planes change, and value by using lines and value rendering.

By the end of the class, you will take home your portrait, as well as feeling confident in this new, creative hobby!
