January 15 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL, PLEASE E-MAIL KIAH TO BE ADDED TO THE WAITLIST: KIAH@PAAM.ORG | FREE FOR PAAM MEMBERS: JOIN OR RENEW

In this workshop, art lovers can learn about portraiture and experiment with drawing from life. Contour drawing, an easy and fundamental drawing skill, will be used to explore the skull and then draw from a live model. We will have the pleasure of seeing portraits from the PAAM collection by Hawthorne, Dickinson, Webster, Lechay and others, and will consider classical tendencies in modern art and in Provincetown. All levels, completely inexperienced to advanced, are welcome. Materials provided, or you are welcome to bring your own.

Valerie Isaacs has been painting outdoors in Provincetown since 2016. She is represented by Julie Heller Gallery in Provincetown, and shows at Corrigan Gallery in Charleston, SC. She studied Architecture at Penn State, drawing and etching in Spain, and painting at the Fleisher Art Memorial (Philadelphia) and with Douglas Balentine (Charleston, SC). Exhibiting since 1990, she has shown at a flamenco bar in Seville, a village fair in France, and at a monastery. Her classes in figure drawing, perspective, basic painting, and landscape painting incorporate study of our painting ancestors.
