Drawing The Portrait

Portrait Drawing Workshop Poster.jpg

Sunday, November 5

Time: 10am – 1pm - Break for Lunch - 2pm – 5pm

Registration: $100

Class limit: 10

In this course we'll look at the structures of the head, and talk about how to create a convincing likeness, when drawing from a live model. We'll be looking at technical issues such as structure and perspective but also how to create drama and narrative through materials, posture, and contrast. Some of the more complicated aspects of using charcoal and pencil to create lifelike effects on paper will also be covered.

Materials: Please bring your own paper and drawing boards, with either vine charcoal and charcoal pencils or graphite pencils. If you've taken a class with Craig before, any charcoal or pencils you have left over should be more than adequate. Some materials may be provided by the instructor.
