Portraiture in Watercolor


Students will learn some basic steps/approaches, processes and techniques of painting the portrait in watercolor. Students will study and learn how to see their subjects in terms of spatial relationships, application and tonality with the aim toward establishing an expressive and unified composition in drawing/painting the "portrait". The instructor will help students improve in their methods of paint application, color scheme and visual representation. The appropriate tools and materials and things to consider when setting up a proper work space will be discussed on the first day of class.

Students should bring: Number 2,3,4, and 5 sable brush, 1", 2" (flat) sable, Palette (plastic or porcelain.), set of watercolors, watercolor pad 12"x18"

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)

**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
