Townsend Atelier is pleased to host one of only two Fall Portrait Academies produced by the Portrait Society of America.

Portrait Academies are a series of educational weekends providing a unique opportunity to watch, learn and talk with nationally known artists.

On Friday evening from 6-9pm artists Marc Chatov, Seth Haverkamp and Dawn Whitelaw will demonstrate simultaneously from live models. Saturday morning will feature a three-hour demo by Michelle Dunaway. The afternoon will begin with an illustrated lecture by Dawn Whitelaw followed by a panel discussion and critiques from original artwork brought in by attendees.

Registration is required and space is limited so register early!  Tuition: $179.
