This class is designed for all-level artists. 
We will play with the idea of transformation and this could entail a physical, emotional, or spiritual change, deep of superficial, personal or collective. Any interpretation is allowed. Students will focus on the portrait but will need to challenge themselves to create a character out of their minds while using the traditional methods of painting in acrylics to achieve a more personal style. The painting will progress in layers and the finished painting will have luminosity and a sense of depth.
