In this class, we will be working with facial drawing techniques and exploring how to translate those into more realistic portrait drawings.

This class will focus on honing in on the shapes of your individual features and better developing your personal likeness through contour.

Supplies: We will be working with both pencil and charcoal techniques and all drawing materials will be provided, except for an optional sketch pad (the teacher will have loose practice paper). The recommended drawing pad size is a 9” x 12” spiral bound, with perforation.
