This class approaches the study of portrait drawing from the structural point of view, utilizing anatomical and skeletal landmarks to conceptualize and build the form from within. Brief lectures and discussion on the structures of the head and features of the face will be given during long break.
These are the first steps in developing artistic capacity to leave the realm visual appearance and embark on drawing and designing from the mind, with the ultimate goal of expressing not only the correct measure of the body but its qualitative meaning.
All skill levels are welcome. For best results, we recommend students to supplement this class with Tuesday evening Cast Drawing.
