DETAILS: Through step by step instruction and constant visual demonstration, Chris Babcock and her team of teachers shows each student how to paint their self-portrait using only the finest professional acrylics on museum quality paper. Each self -portraits will be pre-drawn by Chris in light pencil.  The goal of the class is for each student to focus all energy on studying and recreating subtle details and hues of their eyes, skin, and hair.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  After you reserve seating, please email Chris a very well lit, detailed photo of your child from the top of the shoulders up. (See the examples of photos the girls in the pictures used to make their self-portraits.) The goal is to take a picture that will show the beautiful detail and many subtle colors of your child's eyes, skin, and hair.  There should be no shadows on the face at all.  Please use a flash and high definition and take the shot with indirect sunlight or indirect natural indoor light.  If you have trouble getting a detailed shot you like, you can make an appointment with Chris at her SF studio and she will take photos of your child for the portrait workshop free of charge:)

Please note:  Unless this class is canceled, there are no refunds for this class. If your child is not able to attend, Chris Babcock Art does offer a credit for the unused portion of your child's tuition to be put towards any future art lessons. Credit must be used within a year of purchase.
