    What are the successful components of a portrait? How do you capture someone's likeness? How do you express personality and mood? How do you mix skin tones?

    In this class you'll paint an 11 x 14 portrait of your loved one and learn answers to all these questions and more! You'll gain valuable insight into the portrait painting process and confidence in portrait painting. 

    This class will be held once per week during the winter term (excluding holiday weeks). This will allow time to complete the portraits and allow for any absences. If time allows, you may wish to start another portrait during the term for an additional $40 for the cost of the supplies.

    Prerequisite: Students need to have taken "Paint an Oil Painting Start to Finish" or "Oil Painting Basics" before registering for this class as we will be using some of the techniques learned in these courses.

    Bring to the first class: Have available on your phone, ipad, or printed copies of several portraits (human or pet) for us to review. During the first class we will talk about how to choose your reference photo and choose one to paint from your selections. Be sure the photos are not blurry and have a fairly high resolution. 

    About the instructor:

    I'm a local artist and I love painting the figure. To me, portraits are the ultimate expression of love toward a human or animal. Rendering an image to capture the personality or expression of a being is pure joy. I hope to share my painting experience with you so you, too, can express your love for your family, friends, and furry creatures.

    About the instructor: Clair Kehrberg 

    Well, hello. My name is Clair. For as long as I can remember I have loved anything creative. My specialty is leatherwork, everything from traditional hand carved leather to painting and stitching. I love to create.

    My journey in leather craft began in high school, where I spent my senior year studying with local saddle maker and friend, Tom Berry. After high school I attended a two year saddle making coarse with professor Verlane Desgrange at Spokane Falls Community College in Spokane Washington. It was an intense coarse were I learned traditional floral carving, the correct hand stitching methods, pattern making and construction and the mechanics of fine leather goods and western saddles. Though it was intense, it was the best foundation available in the world and it really set me on my path.

    After graduating from Saddle Making School, I went on to study with Severe Bros Saddlery in Pendleton Oregon, home of the Pendleton Roundup then finally opened my own shop in the fall of 2004.

    I study with master leather crafters when ever I can. Some of the craftsmen I have studied with included world famous saddle maker, Dale Harwood and boot maker Mo Welfl.

    At this point I have done some teaching as well. Teaching traditional leather tooling and writing "how to" articles for the crafters magazine, The Leather Crafters & Saddlers Journal.

    Mandala is the spiritual journey.

    Mandalas are used in many Eastern spiritual traditions as a tool to aid meditation. In Western culture, mental health counselors often use mandalas as a form of stress relief, a tool for therapy, and meditative exercise.

    We will be making a Christmas Mandala on 8x10" black canvas.

    This class is suitable for beginners through advanced, adults and youth ages ten and up.


    My name is Skirma. I am a Marketing and Psychology professional, but also found my passion in painting and started applying it to my therapies.

    This time I invite you to slow down after all the Christmas activities and spend some time focusing on your feelings, relax and paint your Mandala.

    In my early teenage years, I found psychology incredibly interesting and it explains my passion for helping people, training, consulting, and coaching them.

    I have been helping people in different parts of the world; Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, the UK, Denmark, Lithuania, Ukraine, and USA.

    Originally, I am from Lithuania, but now, I and my family live in NY. We love spending time in nature so we are blessed to have this opportunity to come and spend some time in John Day, Oregon.
