Dan Spangler Portrait Drawing Workshop June 17

Spangler2

Have you ever dreamed of being able to draw a portrait of someone and it actually look like them? Do you think drawing a portrait is too difficult a task for you to handle? This Saturday, June 17 from 1:00 P.M to 5:00 P.M., Dan Spangler is teaching a workshop that will teach you how to draw a portrait. Spangler will break it down and teach you how to measure the face to get an accurate portrayal of the face you want to draw. He will work with you until you understand the basics of constructing the face on paper. If you practice what he teaches you in this workshop on Saturday, you will be amazed at how fast you will progress in being able to draw very good images of the people around you.

So Fear No More! Come on down to the Shanley House Center for the Arts, 224 Travis Street by the Hood County Library and take this workshop with Dan Spangler. The workshop is $50 and he will supply materials needed.

If interested contact him at 817-897-3808 or email: danspangler@att.net
