Wire Portrait Class with Master Wireist Diane Komater
July 23 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Wire Portrait Class
with Diane Komater
In this class I will guide students in making a 3-D contour drawing of a person with dark steel wire. No prior experience necessary. With a little effort, you will learn how to draw with wire. At the end of class, you will have a realistic wire rendering of your subject, suspended by a wire box. Your wire portrait will cast an interesting shadow giving your image depth. I love it!
Bring to class an 8×10 headshot black and white copy of someone or yourself, (the bigger the face the better), and a pair of needle nose pliars. I will supply the wire and will have extra pliars on hand.
I have been bending wire for over 30 years and am self taught. My work can be seen; diane_komater Instagram, dianekomater.com, UMA Gallery in Oakland, FreeHand Gallery in Los Angeles and by appointment with The Wireist at; [email protected]
Where? UMA Gallery, 3630 Telegraph Ave, Oakland, Ca.
When? July 23rd
Time? 11am to 4pm
Why? Because this class is fun and rewarding and you’ll learn new wire skills to add to your toolbox!
