INFO ABOUT WORKSHOPS with CHRISTINE SWANN on ZOOM
Thirds of the Head and the Law of Light Workshop
Wednesday February 10, 2020
Understanding the Portrait:
Thirds of the Head (morning) and the Law of Light (afternoon) 10am-4pm: $150.00
Christine will teach her method of learning the "thirds of the head" to help you find a likeness quickly and easily. One portrait will be developed throughout the day.
To understand how to paint a portrait, Christine believes you must understand Light. This workshop focuses on how to truly understand light so any subject can be painted more accurately. You will be able to ask questions and Christine will review your paintings at the end of the day.

Power of Pastel Workshop
Friday, February 12, 2020
The Power of Pastel 10am-4pm: $150.00
Christine will take the portrait into color and show how to control the pastel medium with her philosophy of powers. She will also teach her "GBBB Method" – which describes the inherent characteristics of your favorites sticks and which pastels she categorizes as "gliders", "builders", "burners", or blenders." By understanding these methods, you will learn to better control the pastel medium. Christine will also describe the five layers she uses to create her award-winning paintings. You will be able to ask questions and Christine will review paintings at the end of the day.
