Caricature involves taking a person's distinctive features and deliberately exaggerating or recomposing them to create a comic, or grotesque, effect. Its evolution from traditional portraiture has been a steadily moving process, which has resulted in many incarnations and interpretations. Because of its detachment from reality and its roots in humor and satire, caricature gives an artist a wonderful sense of freedom. This is the perfect workshop for students who want to expand their cartooning or illustration skills.

This course takes place at the Westerly Education Center.
