All levels of painters with life drawing experience



June 12th-14th, 2020


How does an artist create movement, energy, and emotion in their work? How does art elicit a response from the viewer? In this three-day workshop, Robert Kelley will lead students in taking their portraits from static to dynamic and creating a narrative within their art. Instruction will focus on producing a portrait; however, in addition to sharing his technique, Robert will also spend time emphasizing design, concept, composition, and narrative. Students will learn why he makes certain design choices in his work and how each impacts the narrative that he is telling. Robert will guide students in learning the design within the image, moving beyond the scope of academic drawing.

 All levels are welcome! Robert welcomes both beginning and advanced students to his workshops. He will spend time working with each individual throughout the workshop to ensure that all students receive instruction at their own pace.
