Portrait Painting in Acrylics

Portrait painting in acrylic color course develops the artist’s ability to represent the human figure in pictorial space. Drawings are based on observation from life and the study of old master drawings. Emphasis is placed on proportional accuracy, foreshortening and the use of form and cast shadows to achieve convincing three dimensional form.

I am surprised to know that so many students from different walks of life are pursuing online art studies at IFAA. I pursued my first online course with IFAA and was thoroughly happy and satisfied with the course. For me too, like most other students it was the convenience of studying from home without any constraints. Being a mother/ housewife/ freelance artist it would have been impossible to attend a full time college. The major benefit of an online class is that u can see the demo umpteen no of times, get personal feedback, interact with other students all from the comfort of your own home! Plus it’s cost effective.
