Sundays. January 10th – February 28th. 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (Central Time)
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.
There are 2 enrollment levels available for this class:
- $250: includes access to the weekly live streaming class session on Zoom, and to the discussion forum on our site where students can ask questions and interact with each other between class meetings.
- $450: includes everything from the lower tier, plus weekly, one-on-one critique appointments with the instructor(s).
Those students whose enrollment level includes critiques can sign-up for a private critique session with the instructor(s) each week. An array of times lots will be made available throughout the week, between class sessions, so students can book an appointment at a time of their choosing. In this way students can get personalized one-on-one feedback on their drawings before 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.
