Instructor, Linda West
Wednesday, November 7, 14, 28, December 5
1 pm – 4 pm

This workshop will offer a comprehensive foundation in drawing the head for portraiture. The instructor will simplify and sum up the important elements of tackling the head drawing and what it takes to get a portrait likeness. There will be a sequence of steps to build on from the gesture to the basic shapes, the facial forms and features. The topics covered include proportions, key landmarks, perspective, how to measure, planes and more. These basic technical principles should be seen as suggestions for the artist to build their own study. The class size is limited to 8 students and all supplies are included. The fee for the 4-week 3 hour workshop is $175.00.
