JUN 8 - 10am to 3pm | Portrait Drawing in Charcoal with Marjorie Perrin

Portrait Drawing in Charcoal

Discover how a portrait is so much more than simply recording proportions; it can be one of the most expressive drawings you can create. We will focus on identifying the simple patterns and forms that are the basis for a well-designed portrait, students will learn through demonstration to use form, value, and line to develop expression. Students should bring a printed photo or an image on iPad/tablet to work from. Images with clear lighting are easiest but working with images in all lighting situations will be addressed.
