Drawing the Face


An in-depth course focusing on deconstructing the features of the face, proportions of the head, and learning how to capture the subjects portrait accurately and artistically. Learn ways to shade, tone and create form with various pencil techniques and then introduce pastel pencil in the latter part of the course. Pastel is a good introduction to painting and is a useful and simple medium to learn and capture skin and hair tones.
