The Lyme Art Association is proud to host this one-of-a-kind master of portrait and figure painting for a five day workshop in May. For anyone serious about learning to paint the portrait, his workshop is not to be missed!

Steven will discuss both an analytical and emotive approach to painting the human figure with an emphasis on color and value relationships in a related atmosphere. Steven Assael will address structural issues in regard to both form and function. Topics covered will include proportion, anatomy, light, color, and the development of form. This course will include lectures, demonstrations, and critiques.
