FCPS Portrait workshop schedule
Saturday and Sunday, May 9-10, 9am-5pm

From Ann: I’d like to begin the first morning with quick poses of 3 or 4 minutes and gradually building to ten minutes and perhaps the last before the lunch break, 30 minutes. Then the afternoon can be one long pose (with model breaks, of course). The second day might consist of a partially clothed single pose throughout the day. Or we often play it by ear, so to speak, and even have one long morning pose and a different long afternoon pose. The participants will be free to choose to paint only the head and shoulders or the entire figure. I do not want to pressure them concerning their choice as I think the happier one is, the more one can relax and drink in information.

Workshop supply list
Newsprint pad
Charcoal sticks
Chamois cloth
Kneaded eraser
Long clips to hold your paper
At least 5 sheets of Moonstone color (you may bring other colors as well) Canson mi teintes paper or any brand sanded papers or boards. Ann will be using Canson paper for demos.
Light flesh tones graduating to darker earth tones, used in initial drawing.
Soft pastels - Any good set. The more colors, the better.

Lunch options
Lunch is available to workshop participants for $10 per day. There will be bread, lunch meat, cheese,
condiments, snacks, green salad, and fruit. We also provide bottled water and coffee. You must pay for lunch in advance. There is a paypal button on the blog site and the money is due at the same time as the final workshop payment or you can include the cost in your check mailed to Theri Dufour (email us for address)
