This class will guide students in a process of learning how to achieve a likeness in a portrait drawing and painting. Students will spend time every week on basic exercises to develop fundamental skills and learn how likeness is created through head structure and the relationship of features. Understanding of light and shadow will be emphasized as well as achieving illusions of different textures such as hair, skin and fabrics. The instructor will provide demonstrations in both drawing and painting. Students will also receive individual instruction to help develop their drawings or paintings in class.

  • Due to excessive heat warnings, Saturday Night Jazz on June 22, Tribute to Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding: Memphis Soul, will be held INDOORS. Seating will be provided by the Museum. No refreshments are permitted inside the building.
