Begins September 12th, 1:30 – 4:30pm
Instructor: Kathryn Engberg
Students will draw the portrait from a single pose. The sessions will consist of developing a linear drawing with graphite on paper to establish an accurate likeness, proportions, and structure. The students will then begin modeling the form in a highly rational method, slowly developing each area based on an understanding of the effect of light on form. Some topics that will be discussed in length are comparative measuring, shape finding, anatomy of the skull, light and form. Demonstrations and individual critiques throughout each session. Beginning to advanced artists are welcome. Model fee extra. Registrations available for 3, 6 or 12 week sessions.
