SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 FROM 11 AM - 2 PM PST

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

We’ve all heard the advice to use references in order to improve our paintings. But there’s not a lot of discussions on HOW to use those references. If you’ve ever wondered how to best utilize

references for your paintings, look no further! Take a journey to The Reference Zone!

In this fun workshop Karla Ortiz will share tips and tricks on how to utilize references to help

inform your brushstrokes and take your concept artwork to the next level!

 

Students are encouraged to bring their own references; References to help create a portrait, and separate references for elements to add to the portrait.
