Using charcoal and graphite, learn the basics of drawing the human face. This class is suitable for beginners.

Class 1: Basics of Head Proportion, setting up your portrait.

We will use graphite pencils in this class, no shading.

I will provide a few faces online for this class so we are all on the same page.

I want to cover drawing eyes, mouth, nose, ears and the head as a whole.

I would also like to introduce the grid method of drawing, if time allows.

Class 2: Depth and Angle. Making your portrait look real

I will provide pictures.

This class will cover shading and proportions for drawing a face from different angles.

Would like to incorporate light, where we draw the same head multiple times with different angles of light.

Class 3: Expression and Age

Students will collect 1-2 of their own portraits with different expressions, happy, angry.

Proportions associated with young and elderly people, if time allows.

Class 4: Self-Portrait

You will need to provide yourself with a mirror.
