THURSDAY, MARCH 9
6:30 PM – 9:00 PM
Special Event Fee: $50
Class Limit: 25 Students
Live Demonstration – Open to All
Join us in Artelier Studio for a live portrait demonstration by the award-winning portrait artist Oksana Zhelisko.
You will be able to view the process of portrait creation from the very beginning to the finished study.
The beauty of Oksana’s process is that it is done in a way where each stage of the painting can be easily followed. It is encouraging in that it allows viewers the confidence they require to delve into portrait painting. Everything Oksana does is explained and laid bare, making portraiture more approachable than most demonstrations. From the first brushstroke to the last, this demonstration will make a lasting impression and help you feel that portraiture is much less scary than you have thought.
During the presentation, Oksana will engage in questions and answers as well as discuss her experience as a professional artist.
Please feel free to bring a sketchbook and drawing materials to make your own sketches of the inspiring model Mona.
