Abstract lesson: Proportions & Color

In this residency, learners experience how proportions relate to our world through the painting of a portrait. In a 5-day residency, we consider many aspects of the work, from color mixing, backgrounds, texture and line. By the time we create the portrait, the students learn how to manage their brush, be patient with the paint, and assess their own success as they create.
