In a methodical, step-by-step process, Prof Phil and Mantra Cora will guide each student in learning a solid method of portrait painting that is fast and flowing from the initial sketch to the final glaze. It will be a 7-day course of study focused on ''the portrait''; (a self-portrait, or of another, or both). When people come prepared for the workshop, seven days allows more space and time to learn and get through the process, as compared to the typical 5 day – workshops being offered elsewhere. We will use the ''portrait'' as a matrix that will serve a broad spectrum of artistic aims. Whether building a classical image or adorning the face of humanity with a numinous inspiration and holy imagination, this approach is fast, effective, flowing and freeing. Over the course of study, we will dive into painting related issues while exploring what is, perhaps, the artists' most fascinating subject matter — the human portrait.
