Capturing the Essence of a Person, Judith Leeds (Canceled)

October 14 - October 16


Lyme Academy of Fine Art, Old Lyme, CT – LIMITED TO 12

CPS is pleased to feature Judith Leeds, whose honors include Signature member of Pastel Society of America, International Pastel Societies Master’s Circle, and an Elected Member of the Salmagundi Club.

In this workshop, Judith will reveal her secrets to doing a pastel painting that captures the personality of the subject. Through certain exercises and techniques, you will learn what specifically to look for when setting up and painting a subject, so you get the maximum emotional impact and a more accurate depiction of the model. There will be a few different models, taking both short and long poses over the first two days. On the third day, there will be one long pose. Judith will be doing demonstrations to show her method. Open to all levels.

“People have their lives etched into their faces. To me, that is true beauty. It’s the intimate moments that define a life and I try to capture these fleeting impressions in these paintings.”

Supply lists, lodgings, and additional information will be sent to Registrants as we get closer to the workshop date.

Tuition is $375.00 for CPS Members and $400.00 for Non-Members. The tuition is paid in full at the time of registration. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF CPS CANCELS A WORKSHOP DUE TO THE VIRUS, YOU WILL RECEIVE A FULL TUITION REFUND.
