Following are all the classes and workshops I have scheduled for September. Please also note that I have added Hilliard Gallery as a venue! Visit the classes and workshops page on my website to see what classes I have scheduled at Hilliard for October and November. Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

09-06-2008 - Skin Tones Classroom
The class will begin with a slide show presentation and discussion, exploring all the variables that affect skin tones. We will see how the Old Masters portrayed flesh, will view and analyze contemporary works, and see step-by-step in progress images of Lacey's paintings. Then, we will use this information to analyze and mix our own skin tones. Oil color palette choices for flesh tones will be discussed, but feel free to bring your media of choice to work with in class.

* 11 am to 5 pm
* Location: Carnegie Arts Center
* Cost: $120 members / $130 non-members

09-11-2008 through 10-02-2008 - Portrait Drawing
In this 4 week class we will study the art of portrait drawing from lighting and posing the model and what makes a good reference photo, to proportion, creating a pleasing and accurate line drawing, and using value to give your portrait form and solidity. We will work from a combination of life and reference photos that we create ourselves.

09-12-2008 and 09-13-2008 - Sight-Size Drawing
Learn about a technique used by the Old Masters and in the French Academy in this 2 day workshop.

We will start by copying a Bargue plate and then move on to drawing a still life in charcoal.
