Painting The Grandkids with David Goatley

Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery, 444 Parkhill Terrace, Ladysmith BC
Learn how to paint a portrait of your grandchild, child, niece, or nephew from internationally-renowned portrait artist David Goatley.
Painting children has its own unique challenges. The proportions of the face alter considerably from babyhood to teens, and their delicate beauty can be tough to capture. David created this new workshop specifically for those many folks he’s encountered in his 30 plus years of teaching portraiture who have wanted to depict their own children or grandchildren.
Students will bring a selection of 8×10 photographs of their grandchild, niece, nephew, or child that they would like to paint, and David will show them how to approach working from these images to create a painting to be proud of.
