Amy Sherald Inspired Portrait in Graphite

Saturday, June 20, 2020

6:00pm - 6:05pm

This drawing activity is inspired by Amy Sherald’s signature grayscale skin tones. After spending some time reflecting on her work and its impact, take a moment to try out these shading techniques to make a graphite drawing of skin have depth and dynamism. You can use a freehand sketch or reference a photograph to draw the outline. Feel free to use paint or colored pencils to fill in the other elements of your image.
