Learn the classical approach to drawing a portrait from a live model. We will explore the importance of how light falls on a form, how to create the illusion of a three dimensional form, as well as proportion and anatomy. Through lectures, demonstrations and hands-on drawing, we’ll discover the basics of bringing the portrait to life.
