The theme for Week 2 of camp is:

Say Cheese! Portraiture before Photoshop

Before the advent of photography, oil painting was used to capture the likeness of individuals.  This week we will examine how artists used different techniques to emphasize different aspects of their subject.  We will create our own series of portraits focusing on abstraction, naturalism and symbolism to show the personality, mood, and physical likeness of our subjects.
