Class Description

This class is intended for serious beginners and through advanced students.

You will leave with a deeper understanding of:
How to draw eyes, mouths, ears, noses, and hair
Structural thinking and how to think & draw in three dimensional space
how to capture deep likeness and character in your drawings using the matrix of proportion
How to correctly use and think of your block in
What are the elements of an effective, accurate and beautiful contour
the rules of organic form
how to shade your portrait

The workshop will be a combination of demonstrations and practice time, with some classes being practice only. During practice time, I will spend one-on-one time with each student, giving guidance, critique and support. We will always work from a live model.
