In this portrait and lighting class we will take a deep dive into how to craft a great portrait. Various styles of portraiture and artists will be introduced through lecture in class, which students will use as inspiration to craft their own images. Students will be encouraged to be as creative as they want and will produce a polished portfolio piece.

This is a credit-bearing class and grades will be given. Please check the supply list tab for materials needed to complete this class.
