    2018 Fall ArtistY

    “The Fine Art of the Portrait”

    Come join us on this fall as we learn from Paul Ernest.  This hands on artist retreat will be focusing on Art and Storytelling of a portrait.  Make sure you bring your camera gear and laptops as we learn how to create one of a kind art portraits that will fill your creative soul.    

    Paul says:

    “Over the years i have worked, trained or studied in areas that I have broken down into 5 keys parts or perspectives. That said, I decided to analyze those areas to understand how I approach my work and how I could teach it to others. The diagram with two rings. The inner ring shows the experiences in my life and the outer ring shows how I apply them to my work.

    In this study I will teach you the five parts of my approach based on my background as an artist, writer, photographer, creative director and cinematographer.”

    This is a class you won’t want to miss!  All PPA members who attend on Monday September 10 will receive a PPA service merit.
