This is the last week of our free online sessions (see the 2 listed below). We hope you’ve been able to take advantage of these to stay creatively engaged. We’ve loved seeing all of you! GAC has offered these as a means to keep connected with our students, and they have also helped support our instructors during the shutdown. If you’d like to help cover these costs, please visit our Online Session donation page.

Portrait Lighting Workshop
Instructor: Jonathan Weekes
Wednesday, June 24, 1-2pm
Cost: Free, Register Now

In this workshop we will explore some classic Portrait Lighting setups to help improve your portrait photography. Using lighting to enhance the highlight and shadow patterns that fall across the face is called modeling. We will use basic lighting arrangements that can be easily replicated using lamps around your home or even a window. And many of these ‘setups’ can also be used outdoors by using the sun as a main source light. We will be covering the following lighting setups: Split lighting, Loop lighting, Rembrandt lighting, Butterfly lighting.

Portrait Drawing Session
Instructor: Scott Paterson
Friday, June 26, 3:00 – 4:00PM
Cost: Free, Register Now

Join us for an online draw-along. We’ll depict the great 20th Century jazz pianist, composer, and arranger Mary Lou Williams. You will need an easy way to access the picture of her, either from a printout or from your device, an approximately 9”x12” sketch pad, a pencil, and an eraser.
