Lance Smith’s formula for portraiture: start with a special photo—add memories—and draw. This workshop guides participants through a practice that unites conversation and group sharing with classic observational 2-D drawing techniques. Participants focus on color, form, and the role of detail in portraiture.

Bring a photograph of a loved one from the past as a visual reference.
