Make Night: Portraiture

This introductory drawing workshop is intended for those interested in understanding the foundations of chiaroscuro portrait drawing, which makes use of dramatic light and shadow. Using various charcoal drawing techniques, participants will create their own portraits based on works in the Walters’ collection and through observation of a live model on the Sculpture Court.

Tyler Farinholt attended the Maryland Institute College of Art, where he studied art history and curatorial practices. He has worked in the Walters Art Museum's education department since 2013, teaching a variety of educational programs. Farinholt’s works in charcoal have evolved from smaller studies into large, emotional, chiaroscuro mixed-media drawings that explore themes of loss, anxiety, isolation, and identity.

Make Night is a unique, dynamic museum program blending good wine and craft beer, great company, and fantastic art-making experiences led by local creative minds. Pre-registration required. Each Make Night includes one drink ticket.
