This hands-on class will also cover shadows and lights and how the two of them work together to create form. Completion of this class will result in a better understanding of drawing the portrait and making the face come to life on the paper.

Nathan Brandner is a painter known for his bold yet sensitive brushwork. His work encompasses landscapes, still lifes and portraits done in an expressive yet representational manner. Executing paintings and drawings from life is the cornerstone of his craft. Drawn to the beauty of the way light interacts with his subject Nathan seeks to illuminate and share the mystery in life that is often taken for granted.
Having a four-year degree in art, classical training at home and abroad, Nathan has taken the time to carefully hone his craft. With continual workshops under modern day masters and studying those who have come before, it is his firm belief that painting, and drawing is very much a learned skill. It is a practice that with extensive study anyone with enough curiosity can achieve.
