Drawing the Portrait: a Constructive Approach to Interpreting the Human Head.
This drawing workshop is designed for the beginning to intermediate student. Working from a live model, the student will learn to construct the human head, from line, to mass, the block in, to planes, features, shape and anatomy, with the goal of creating a life-like, realistic portrait. This will be an intensive learning experience whereby the student will gain a solid foundation in understanding the structure of the human head.
Although this is a foundational workshop, some of the concepts are advanced, and previous drawing experience is highly recommended. We will be working primarily in graphite and charcoal, but any drawing media is acceptable. A full supply list will be distributed before the workshop begins.
The instructor will give individual critiques at the easel, demonstrations, and visual aides to further illustrate the concepts. Throughout the class, informal discussions will be encouraged, with the goal of providing a safe, inspirational environment, in which the student will feel challenged. It is the goal of the instructor and the class that the student develop a greater facility, ease and understanding of not only the human portrait, but also the tools, techniques and procedures that will make the drawing experience a life-long challenge and pleasure.
Prerequisites: Beginning level drawing course required.
Supply List: A full supply list will be distributed before the workshop begins.
