About the Workshop
Portrait painting has probably been around as long as people have been around. In this workshop we’ll continue the tradition and create our own (self, other, abstract, etc.) portrait of choice. Beginners welcome. We’ll cover the basics of portrait painting and attend to composition, color, and line choices. This is a very short time to complete a portrait, so please be prepared to leave with a Work in Progress or rough painting. The point will be to have fun, learn a few things, and celebrate the unique face you create.
About the Instructor
Hyewon Grigoni has engaged in a variety of creative practices since childhood. Her work and writing have appeared in art shows, in print, and on air for public radio. She has taught art and art appreciation at the K-12 level, and her favorite discipline to teach for both kids and adults is Drawing 101 – aka the Art of Observing. Lately she focuses on daily sketching, portrait painting, and beginning carpentry.
Hyewon believes that art, like good writing or good religion, can comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. Her work aims to achieve a little of both in equal measure.
She hopes attendees of DukeCreate workshops will enjoy a laid back, supportive environment to get away from their day and make stuff.
