For Love or Money: Portraiture & the Pursuit of Excellence

This 4-day workshop focuses on the challenges of becoming a successful commissioned portrait artist, which involves more than just painting well! The commissioned portrait painter must understand client relationships, business practices, marketing and promotional activities in addition to the complexities of consistently delivering high-quality paintings.

This workshop includes both studio painting and lecture sessions. Saper will address the following areas of study: getting a likeness; understanding the colors of light and shadow; using photographic references successfully; presenting yourself and your work effectively; client relations; understanding your market; and developing your own business plan. The handbook, “For Love or Money: A Business Handbook for Portrait Painters” (available throughwww.blurb.com) will be used in this class. It is not necessary to buy the handbook, but Saper will have copies available for purchase.

The focus is on oil media, but painters of any medium are welcome, including those who wish to work in monochrome. Saper has proficiency with oil, pastel and acrylic, and can guide the watercolorist in all principles of color, drawing and design.

Contact me with any questions you might have, or contact the MAG directly to register!

Prescott, AZ is 90 miles north of Phoenix, and is a gorgeous, quaint mountain town at 5200 feet, where the summers are lovely (unlike the Phoenix summers,which are definitely NOT lovely )
