Portrait Drawing Live Streaming Class OctoberOct 24 2021 01:00pm - DecemberDec 19 2021 04:00pm

This class has already begun, but it's not too late to sign up! Past class sessions are available via replay video so you can get caught-up before our next meeting. Sign up here if you'd like to join us!

Sundays. October 24th – December 19th. 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (Central Time)

Please Note: There will be no class on Sunday, November 7th. Class will resume the following week on November 14th.

This class presents the fundamentals of portrait drawing over 8 weeks of study. Topics covered will include:

  • Drawing Materials: What we use and why we use it.
  • The Drawing Process: Building illusionistic form from linear block-in to tonal rendering.
  • Mechanics of Light: Light is the primary subject of illusionistic artwork. The concept of how light interacts with form will be emphasized repeatedly.
  • Anatomy and Structure: Key anatomical structures determine the major masses of the figure and these are addressed first. Later structural characteristics of the torso and limbs are discussed one by one.

This class will be streamed live on Zoom every week. The primary class session will meet on Sunday afternoons (Central time) when the instructor(s) will perform an extended demonstration on-camera. Each week's demo will focus on a particular stage of the drawing process and students are encouraged to work along with the instructor(s) and ask questions in real time. For students unable to attend the live a session, a recording will be made available on our website for one week until the next class session begins.

A high-quality photo reference of the model will be made available to all students at the beginning of the class. This will be the same reference the instructors will be using and as such we'll all be able to draw the same model from the same point of view - something not possible with traditional on-ground classes with a live model. Another advantage of this format is students will be able to work on their drawings between classes although we recommend not getting too far ahead of the demo each week.
