My annual portrait drawing workshop will be Saturday Aug 6, 12pm to 8pm. It's designed to be an instructive overview of the materials, techniques, and concepts for successful portrait drawing. To enroll contact LAAFA.org, phone (877) MY-LAAFA

Here's what you'll get for your hard earned money and time:

• The fundamentals of constructing the head with the values of light and shadow.

• Ideas for portrait composition and creating a likeness.
• Techniques and tips on materials and the drawing process.

Hope to see you there!

Sounds amazing!
For those of us on the wrong side of the world to attend, would you ever considering putting your slideshow, lecture & demo on DVD for purchase?
