Larry Lourcey presents Growing as an Artist (The Power of Self-Assignments)
First and foremost, Larry Lourcey is a portrait artist. Since earning his Bachelor of Arts in 1992, continuing education has always been a priority. Countless art classes and photography workshops have helped to mold his style and technique.
His work encompasses a broad range of styles - from fun, whimsical black and whites to elegant, traditional portraiture. He is also a talented painter, with a rich style inspired by artists like Pina Daeni and John Singer Sargent. His work has been featured in everything from the ”Painter Wow“ books to the cover of Professional Photographer Magazine.

Larry will discuss Growing as an Artist (The Power of Self-Assignments)
As the digital revolution continues to blur the line between amateurs and pros, it is more important than ever for us to grow as artists.
If you take your artistry to the next level, recognition of your work will follow. One of the best ways to do this is through self-assignments.
In this fun and educational program, Larry will show you how he has used self-assignments to take his photography to the next level.
More importantly, he will show YOU how you can do it yourself. This is a can’t-miss program!
