ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
Learn to draw the head in any perspective from memory with a two day intensive. Explore the potential that a competent and confident head drawing will do for your paintings and drawings.
Often daunting, the wonderfully complex head is an endless source of formal, pictorial, and metaphorical information. Students will work to surpass mere physical likeness, and discover how the expressive potential inherent in the head is directly affected by the organization of pictorial elements. This workshop is recommended for students who have previous drawing experience.
