Wild Ride Portraits

taught by Lisa Binder & Deanie French

Come join us in the creation of wonderful portraits from your wild side. The human face will be our focus as we create expressive self portraits using a wide range of materials including paint, collage papers, charcoal, oil pastels, inktense pencils and more. Which aspects of your inner self will show up? Delight, fury, foolishness, wisdom, compassion, hate, power, helplessness, overwhelm, serenity, terror, love, ... ? We will welcome them all.


Little or no experience with portraiture? Not to worry. We'll have an opening exercise and demonstrate easy ways to get you going. We'll also be showing examples of expressionistic and abstract portraits to put our work in context. So come take a Wild Ride with us and see where your portrait takes you!
