What you'll learn in this portrait class:

Black figurative artists in the Bay Area will teach life drawing and painting students how to accurately depict Black art models.

Celebrating professional Black art models of all sizes, genders, and identities, these 2-3 day workshops will cover topics ranging from portraiture (how to render African phenotypes, Black facial features, and hair textures) to the many shades of Blackness (how to create African skin tones).

Students of every ethnicity are encouraged to sign up for Black Portraiture Workshop.

Class Format:

  • Day 1: How to draw the Black Portraiture: Using reference materials, we will discuss African beauty standards and how they've been diluted in most art/media through a Eurocentric lens. Students will learn how to look at and draw Black facial features, as well as the mistakes that are often made.
  • Day 2: Painting Accurate Skin Tones: This class will focus on medium, techniques, and color mixing—using watercolor painting to create beautiful dark skin tones.
  • Day 3: Final Painting: We will continue to work with the model to complete a final painting.

Materials List will be provided by the Instructor prior to class.
