Class: Drawing the Human Head

Event Details

HAVE YOU wondered where you go wrong when you attempt to draw a face or a portrait? In this class you will start with drawing a real skull, and work you way up to the planes of the face. You’ll practice them in portrait, profile, and 3/4 view. Then we will add the skin, practice types of shading and learn to determine where the light is coming from and how that affects highlights and shadows. Then on to each part of the face: eyes, nose, lips, ears, and hair. Anyone can learn to draw the human head with the tools I will teach you. Learn how the parts of the head reflect each other, and understand how to see faces in a brand new way.

What to bring: A set of drawing pencils (soft and hard), a ruler, 9” x 12” Strathmore 400 Series Drawing Pad, kneaded eraser, white plastic eraser, blending stumps, charcoal, a black Sharpie pen. Minimum class size is 3. Class size limited to 7.
