ArtSchoo Class: Portrait Painting

Filed under: ArtSchool — Tags: , , , , — Lyndsay Booth @ 2:13 am

First, an apology to all of those looking for some shots of the Great Big Gone concert. I experimented a little and the experiment didn’t work out like I planned resulting in very poor quality photos. So instead I am going to make my first post  in a bi-monthly series on the ArtsCenter’s portrait painting class. I’ll be spending some time in the class every other week or so documenting the students’ progress. I know very little about art, drawing, or painting (I can’t draw a straight line even with a ruler) so hopefully I will learn a bit and be able to share that with you. Hopefully as the class progress I can also get a few students to share some of their experiences with me. Below are some shots from the first day of class.
