Instructor: Yuki Horikawa
These classes will help intermediate/advanced students develop the fundamental skills and foundational understanding to create their own pastel portraits. Mr. Horikawa will emphasize basic charcoal drawing skills, the fundamental study of human anatomy, portrait composition, and understanding light direction as the essential elements of a portrait. A clothed human model will serve as muse, allowing students time for study of the human figure. This class will be a great opportunity for artists to improve their skills, make friends, and help contribute to the Loveland art community.
About Yuki Horikawa
Mr. Horikawa has developed his own technique with pastel. He creates many layers of fine lines of color layered to create all of the elements of a portrait from lifelike skin tones, to human hair and clothing, as well as the soft and specific surfaces of furniture and interiors. While he is willing to teach his technique, he also believes that it is important for students to discover their own method with pastel as they explore and engage with the medium. His exhibitions have been included in multiple New York art galleries.
