Juan Ramirez - The New Portrait

In this workshop we will explore the relationship between realism and abstraction to create a strong portrait. Each day Juan will demonstrate how he designs and paints a realistic portrait that begins with strong abstract statement. This workshop will challenge artists of all levels to observe, compose and paint realistically using a proven method. Juan Ramirez is an experienced, sought after instructor. He will help each student identify their strengths, and offer suggestions for improvement. Join us for the optional visit to the National Gallery of Art on June 25. Juan is spilling over with knowledge of the old master artists he has studied, and he will share how he applies his observations of their work in his own paintings.”
