Impressionist Portraits in Pastel or Oil led by Karen Meneghin

May 18 at 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$300.00

Each morning would begin with a 1-hour demo of Manet’s approach to portraiture: 1) GEORGE MOORE (pastel) and 2) BERTHE MORISOT (oil or pastel) followed by 2 hours of a pastel or oil block in “in the manner of Manet” per the demo. In the afternoons we would work from the same model “in the manner of Manet.” We would need one costumed model in the same pose for both afternoons which gives participants one full day to work on their portraits.

Following on the heels of the MANET DEGAS Exhibition at The MET/NY, we’ll work primarily in pastels “in the manner of” Edouard Manet during our Two-Day Workshop, producing two “master copy sketches” and one original portrait working from a live model over two afternoons. Although the emphasis will be on pastels, the loose sketch approach is applicable to both pastel and oils and we encourage you to try each, i.e., a morning warmup “color sketch” in pastel and afternoon sustained oil portrait, as you wish.
