Featuring Artist Mary L. Hoffman (

Many of you will remember her as our presenter for our May meeting where she demonstrated her skill at portraiture using our David Phillips as model. Immediately following the meeting, several members requested a workshop from Mary so be sure to sign up to save your place.
General information.
As instructor, Mary's goal is to bring to the student the basics of portraiture.
Working in oil, the class will cover the three fundamentals of painting: hue, value, and Chroma. These fundamentals, along with the all-important drawing, are the foundation upon which we will build the portrait.
Schedule. 9 AM – 4 PM each day; bring lunch, order out, or pick up
Friday: Introduction and demo from a live model.
Saturday: Students begin their own paintings from a live model, break for lunch, and resume for the afternoon ending at 4:00. A brief critique will enhance the learning process.
Sunday: Continue individual instruction and final critique at 4:00.
