This class is an exploration of the fundamental principles used in drawing portraits. Structural concepts such as planes and construction will be emphasized, as well as the techniques of tonal drawing. Analysis and breakdown of the individual features will be an integral part of the class, with special emphasis being placed upon their relation to the whole. Observation of shapes and the identification of the unique character of each model will be taught as a means of capturing a likeness.
