Virtual Portrait Painting with Daphne Confar

Virtual Portrait Painting with Daphne Confar

All are welcome to the Cambridge Art Association's two-day virtual workshop on Thursday, March 4 and Thursday, March 11. In Portrait Painting with Tonal Acrylics and Oil Glazing, with Daphne Confar, participants will learn specific painting techniques used by Daphne in her own portraiture work. Beginning with a tonal underpainting in acrylic, Daphne will go through her unique process of portrait painting. The two sessions involve a method of establishing values with a monochromatic underpainting, building upon thin layers of paint then finishing with several layers of oil paint glazing.

Participants should bring their own source material to work from. Admission is $95 for members and $115 for nonmembers. Registration closes one week prior to the program date at 5 p.m. A Zoom link will be sent out by 5 p.m. the day before the first class date.

Daphne Confar is a painter who finds the process of painting exciting. Her relationship with her family and especially her relationship with her grandmothers, who would spend time with her plus tell stories of their lives, fed her imagination as well as gave her a love of people along with a love of people's stories that informs her work to this day.

Daphne has her MFA in Painting from Boston University. She has shown her work in museums and galleries from coast to coast in addition in Europe. Her work is in many corporate and private collections, plus has been recently acquired by the Provincetown Museum of Art for their permanent collection.
