Portrait Drawing Class
I am thrilled to be teaching two upcoming portrait drawing workshops at Elephant Room Gallery! This portrait workshop is geared toward beginner and intermediate artists who are interested in learning more about how to draw portraits. This class will teach basic facial proportions and will focus on giving students practice drawing the human face. The class will culminate in a finished portrait. The instructor will provide a combination of group instruction, as well as one-on-one guidance to help students gain confidence while drawing portraits.
Tickets are $40 and all supplies will be provided to students. Space is limited to just 6 students per class, so RSVP soon.
Saturday, September 30th from 3pm to 6pm
Sunday, October 15th from 2pm to 5pm
Elephant Room Gallery, 704 S Wabash Ave. Chicago
"Customer Service" Series at The Bagelers Coffeehouse
I am very excited to have the full "Customer Service" series on display at The Bagelers Coffeehouse through September.
About the series:
The paintings entitled Customer Service reflect the beauty of our dreams and aspirations, and the relentless hope and optimism that we all hold amidst setbacks and frustrations. These images juxtapose worn-down service workers with images that represent thoughts, escapes, fantasies, or illustrations of who they are and what actually matters to them. These portraits put the customer service worker on a pedestal that unfortunately isn’t often there in real life, transforming the hardened service worker into a cherished object and showing that there is often more than meets the eye. It is about the beauty that exists in the human mind, and the persistence of the human spirit.
