Your tuition includes lifetime access to my new membership site and my Contrast and Textures full length instructional video! This video introduces you to all of my materials and techniques. If you have taken a class from me before, this is a great refresher. If you are new to my techniques, this will get you up to speed and ready to jump right in to smooth skin portraits
This class will focus on the techniques necessary to create the look of smooth skin for portraits of females and babies. Students will also follow along with me as I demonstrate how to render eyes, lips, and hair, with graphite, carbon, charcoal, and various blending techniques.
Students of this class are encouraged to bring examples of previous work for me to evaluate privately. These one-on-one sessions will take place at the end of class each day for those interested.
I will have examples of my some of my work on display so you can see the degree depth and realism that is possible using my techniques. The goal is to get your work to have the same degree of realism and "pop".

Comments from Previous Workshop Students:
"This was the best workshop I've ever attended. It was so nice to have the supplies provided so I had the tools for class without having to find each one. The techniques I learned will enhance every part of my art including painting."
"Very positive and encouraging. The one-on-one critique was very helpful as was the constant reinforcement as JD went student to student. The over all attitude was light and fun and time flew!"
"I have learned more in this class than I have learned anywhere else. JD is a fantastic instructor and incredibly patient. I can't wait to take more workshops!"
"Many people can paint or draw exceptionally well but most of them are not equipped to teach. This was not the case with J. D. presented a very well thought out program very easy to understand."
"Great course, lots learned in short time will improve my portrait drawing. I will sign up for additional classes"
"Having taken art classes in drawing, this is by far the best instruction Ive ever had. This was a first class affair! From start to finish. It is sad for the people who missed it."
is very thorough and has a very good way of explaining things
