Portrait Rediscovered, with Corey Pitkin

May 13 - May 15

Corey Pitkin, PSA, IAPS/MC

It is likely that the first thing you ever drew was a portrait. When you first put crayon to paper you were compelled to recreate the people in your life. Yet as we grow and our visual standards become more discerning many of us give up creating portraits, feeling that it is too complicated.

In this 3-day workshop, Corey Pitkin will guide students through his method for breaking a likeness down into manageable steps to recapture your enthusiasm for portraits. Students will work from the same live model for all 3 days focusing on composing the portrait, placement of shapes, light and its effects on flesh tones, edges, details, and defining the feel of the portrait.  Each day will begin with a demonstration of that day’s focus, followed by individual guidance and group discussions about the technical, historical, and artistic aspects of the portrait.

Registration for our 2022 Workshop Offerings is ONLINE ONLY.
Tuition is $375.00 for CPS Members and $400.00 for Non-Members. The tuition is paid in full at time of registration. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF CPS CANCELS A WORKSHOP DUE TO THE VIRUS, YOU WILL RECEIVE A FULL TUITION REFUND.
