I am teaching at my Screw Factory studio in Lakewood through The Cleveland Institute of Art.  I am also teaching at BAYarts in Bay Village.

At the Screw Factory:

Portrait Drawing and Painting
Adults + students in grades 9-12
Mondays, September 17–October 8, part I 
Mondays, October 15–November 5, part II 
6–9pm 4 sessions each 
location: Martin O’Connor’s Studio, room 296, Templar Industrial Park (Lakewood) 
cost: $175

Would you like individualized instruction in both drawing and painting portraits in oil? Then this is the class for you! Working with long poses, you will have time to develop an accurate likeness of the sitter. Demonstrations will be done in charcoal and oil paint. The core of lessons will
be based on anatomy, proportion, drawing value, edges, planes of the head, composition, lighting, and posing the model. Bring your chosen medium. If you are new to working from life, start with drawing.

At BAYarts:
