Bob Williams,

Michiana’s well-known and highly talented portrait artistand former president of the Berrien County Artists’ Guild, has been teaching there at the Box Factory in St.Joseph, Mich., for the last 20 years. He has agreed to come to our Guild throughout August to train us in a concentrated and inclusive study of his special art. The evening classes are for portrait drawing only and may be taken independent of the 2- session painting workshop. However, Bob highly recommends that anyone taking the Saturday classes enroll in his drawing classes first. Then, on Sat., Aug. 20,and Sat. Aug. 27, he will guide you in his special technique of completing a portrait in oil in just those two Saturdays. This art experience is for those intermediate and advanced artists who are willing to make August a concentrated month, for those who want to take their next big step in capturing likeness and interpretation of the subject.
