Portrait Class Description

Portraiture for Beginners
Instructor: Missy H. Dunaway
You must sign up with Missy
Visit her website: missydunaway.com

Fee: $95/session (includes model fee)

Session 1: Wednesday, July 18th 10 – 4 pm; Wednesday, July 25th 5 – 8 pm

Session 2: Wednesday, August 1st 10 – 4 pm; Wednesday, August 8th 5 - 8 pm

Improve your portraiture skills with this two-day, intensive workshop. In the first class, students will learn to render form, likeness, and expression using the Loomis and Reilly methods to construct the skull, study planes of the head, and detect rhythm lines of the face. Class will break one hour for lunch. In the afternoon, we will refer to the Asaro bust and medical-grade imitation skulls as we draw a live, clothed model. In the second class, we will review previously learned information as we spend an evening drawing the portrait of a live, clothed model in a long pose.

Materials List:

Students should bring:
- Drawing board with clips to hold paper
- Box of soft or extra soft vine charcoal (I recommend Grumbacher, next best is Winsor Newton)

- OPTIONAL - Conte crayon or conte pencil if you prefer it to charcoal

Drawings by Katharina Keoughan,

 “A Series of Shapes”

Conté and watercolor, 15 x 15


When drawing a figure, I don’t set out to draw a nude body. I draw shapes, positive and negative shapes, round shapes, and curved shapes. Often I draw in the areas that remain after the figure is rendered. This series began after I drew a female figure and chose to draw a square around her. My curiosity grew. I asked myself how much space could a figure fill in a square or a circle, where is the mass and what shapes remain? These drawings are a series of shapes. 
Yet, I am hoping my audience finds their own meaning in the drawings: 
femininity, sensuality, mother-earth, confinement, or strength.

My first career as a graphic designer and owner of a leading graphic studio in Miami, Florida, prepared me well for my second career as a fine artist. On moving to Maine 25 years ago I pursued painting with the same drive and enthusiasm I gave to my design work. Fourteen years ago I began teaching and found my passion in nurturing adult painting students. The result is teaching, exhibiting, being a part of the art community and living a joyous life.

Exhibit ends July 13.

Admission is Free, and the Public is Welcome.

Centre St Arts Gallery, LLC

Invites you to a Wine & Cheese Reception to open our new show with Guest Artist David Higgins.

A Rainy Day, Castine, David Higgins

5 - 7 pm
11 Centre Street, Bath


BATH - Centre St Arts Gallery, LLC, announces the opening of a new exhibit by gallery members and guest artist David Higgins, at 11 Centre Street, Bath, on Friday, March 30, with a wine and cheese reception from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. The public is invited to attend and meet the artists. Admission is free.

Dave Higgins has been a photographer and educator for more than fifty years. Born in Portland, ME, Dave is a lifelong resident of the state of Maine and has lived and photographed all over the state. He is a tech school graduate in graphic arts and over the years earned a BS in vocational education and a Master of Fine Arts - Visual Arts.  Higgins was a graphic arts teacher and taught photography and graphic design for 25 years. In 1999 Higgins was technology teacher of the year in New Hampshire. After retiring from public education, he continued to teach photography and design at local art societies and teacher workshops. Higgins' work is exhibited and published throughout Maine and New England as well as online. In 2005 he was an artist in residence at Carina House on Monhegan Island.


Red and Blue,  David Higgins

Photography is his first love, and his work covers a wide spectrum of interests. Although much of his work could be called landscape, Higgins feels it is more about subtle relationships than grand vistas. He places emphasis on line, tone, form and compositional relationships. Minimalism is often a important concept in his work. Twenty years ago he moved his photography completely into the digital realm which he feels allows him the freedom to simplify and to blur the borders between black and white and color, between photography and other art forms, and especially between the real and the perceived.

These ideas led him back to painting, a medium he had not used since he was in his twenties. He soon found that, not only does his photography influence his painting, but also his painting influences his photography. He says: "In 2012, I had an epiphany of sorts and began combining both photography and painting in the computer. These images often start with a photograph and use digital brushes and various software, filters and/or screens to develop a scene. The resultant works are neither photographs nor paintings but an amalgamation of the two into something new. I now find my options for expressing my vision are truly limitless."

Higgins' work will be in the Gallery from March 25 through May 19. Call 207-442-0300 or go to centrestartsgalleryllc.com for more information. Centre St Arts Gallery, LLC, at 11 Centre Street, Bath, is open Wednesday through Saturday 10:30 to 5:00.
