About The Event

[About the Workshop]

Improve your artistic proficiency, no matter your skill level, by enrolling in the upcoming Expressive Portrait Drawing Workshop. 

Led by renowned artist-instructor Zin Lim, whose signature style boasts of dynamic and expressive methods that capture movement and emotions in a unique way, this workshop promises to be a turning point in your artistic journey. 

Drawing on the principles of visual elements, composition, and value schemes, Zin Lim will guide you through building the structure of a portrait painting with charcoal strokes. You'll also have the opportunity to create a personalized portrait from reference photos provided or your own. Take advantage of this exclusive experience to elevate your artistry and stylization.
