About this course:

Explore both contemporary and traditional approaches to portraiture by looking at the head in relation to the full body. This course begins with learning to see the full figure in terms of line, alignment, proportion, volume, and tone. By transferring this knowledge to the portrait, students learn about structure of the face, likeness, and how to visualize and draw the head from different angles. This course also covers composition, form, content, and the power of psychology and emotion that can be derived from a portrait. Dry media, including pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, and pastel are covered.
Prerequisites
Previous drawing experience, especially with the figure, is strongly encouraged but not required.
