Portraits and drawings of people are compelling. We love it when the artist captures a likeness - that most elusive of goals. Learn how to look at a face and draw what you see. Discover how to look at the form of the face and understand how the features change as the angle of the face, or the light changes. Using mirrors and photographic reference, engage in exercises and techniques designed to create an understanding of the foundations of portrait drawing. Using a variety of traditional media - graphite, conte, pastel and charcoal, explore the importance and impact of light on form and how to draw the shapes of light and shadow. Instruction will include both traditional and contemporary methods of drawing the face.
