Learn how to draw the human head using correct facial proportions and direct observational skills. This workshop will be divided into two portions. In the first session, Kathleen will demonstrate how to properly set up a head study, including mapping facial features, dividing the head into proper proportions, and rendering the drawing. Then, students will work on their own drawings from the model with guided instruction at their easels. Model fee included in student tuition.
