Even if you can draw a face from memory, it takes a practiced eye to create an accurate image of a particular person's face-- that's where this class comes in!

We will spend this weekend series learning how to look, working from live models to help us trust what we see, not what we think we know. Graphite, charcoal, and pen and ink will all be provided.

Expect to spend the first day working on warm ups and drills to help focus your gaze on an individual's unique features and draw from what your eye is telling you, not what you remember. On the second day we will work on a longer drawing of one face to completion. This is a great intro to portraiture class. All experiences welcome and all materials provided.

You can take the full series or sign up for each class individually!

$75 visitor series, $60 member series; $50 visitor per class, $40 member per class
