In this course, participants will be drawing the portrait from life. This will be a foundation course in portrait drawing, and will include drawing studies related to contour, gesture, anatomy and proportion, modeling the effects of light, and choosing scale and developing compositions. All skill levels are welcome. Watch your portrait come to life!
For the first class, please bring the following materials: Two soft "peel and sketch" charcoal pencils, one jumbo sized soft vine charcoal, one "pink pearl" or other hard eraser, and a large format sketchpad 18' x 24' or larger. A small modeling fee will be collected during modeling sessions.
