VA15 Virtual: Make Your Portrait Pop with Collage

Learn the step-by-step methods to create a colorful collage portrait. Whether you are making a portrait of a celebrity, family member, or yourself, these techniques are the same. We will begin by choosing the best photo reference and go through all of the steps to create a finished artwork. We will also look at ways to elevate your portrait and transcend the original reference with texture, emotion, and personalized touches. This course includes live Zoom class sessions.

*Virtual Course Policy: Students registered for virtual courses are expected to conduct themselves as if participating in an on-site Bemis course. As a virtual course registrant, Bemis asks that you please be aware of your surroundings during virtual class sessions. Ensure your Zoom camera background is simple and clear of any foot traffic, including family members moving in and out of view, bright backlighting, or anything else that would be distracting to fellow students and the instructor. If need be, you can choose to turn off your camera in Zoom and turn it back on when you’re ready.
