This class is held offsite at The Haverford School just down the street from the center at 450 Lancaster Avenue. 

Learn the essentials of oil portrait painting in this two day workshop.  You will paint directly from a portrait model and develop a finished painting. The instructor will paint alongside the students and will provide individual critiques at the easel.  Topics for discussion will include proportion, color palette choice and mixing.


Parking: Enter the Haverford School from the Lancaster Avenue entrance then follow the circle to the last parking lot in front of the glass building. Parking is free. MLAC staff will be there on the first class to welcome students and direct you to the classroom.
