Portrait Drawing with Anatomy

Portraiture is endlessly challenging and stimulating.  Spend eight weeks focusing on the human face, head and neck.  Each morning will will contain a slide talk with anatomy, canons of proportion, slide examples of portraits from contemporary and historical art, and time with the model in the afternoon to apply knowledge and skills.

Students who wish to sign up for this class must have taken Drawing or Painting with Sarah in the past and feel proficient in the basic elements of drawing.
