 A One Day Portrait Sketch Workshop will be given by artist Bridget Grady at Blue Horse Arts in April.
This one day workshop will be an opportunity to develop your portrait sketching skills. Students will learn a simple method of taking the portrait from a flattened description to a more life-like form.
The morning session will have you working from old masters drawings as an initial reference for the study and practice of facial forms, optical measuring techniques, and shape relationships. The afternoon session will take the knowledge gained from the morning session and apply it to the live model. Previous drawing experience is helpful but beginners will gain valuable foundation skills and exercises to assist in their artistic  development.  This class will run from 10:00 AM - 4PM, Saturday, April 7th, with a 45 minute break for lunch. Participants should bring a lunch or can frequent several nearby restaurants. 
Tuition 90.00 plus a 20.00 model fee. A 50 percent deposit is required to hold a spot in this class.

Blue horse arts is located at 250 Porter Street ,Watertown, Connecticut.
