Heads up! Portrait drawing, continued

Registration is now open for part two of Portrait Drawing.

Portrait Drawing 2: Form and Volume
In the continuation of Portrait Drawing: The Human Head, you learn to make increasingly three-dimensional heads in both line and value. Heighten the sense of volume, solidity and space in your drawings with an in-depth study of the head's sculptural qualities coupled with some useful anatomical information. Starting with pure line, discover the "inner" surfaces of the head and face and find out how exterior lines relate to interior planes. Then, following line and plane into volume, learn the important concept and technique of modeling the form to build a convincingly 3-d head on your page. Finally, you work with light and shadow to reveal form and create exciting depth and atmosphere, using both additive and subtractive techniques in pencil and charcoal. Art history continues to be an important part of our studies as we work from both reproductions and live models. Pre-requisite: Portrait Drawing: The Human Head 1, or permission of instructor.
