Drawing the Face & Figure: Portrait Practice (FLEX class)
Practice drawing the human face from different angles, and with different hair styles! #Creative
**This class is available to be scheduled at your request! Message with your preferred start date. Flex class lessons are recorded and may be completed on the day(s) of your choosing. *********************************** Interested in learning to sketch faces from different angles? Or different types and styles of hair? Learn how face proportions alter as the pose changes, practice drawing from observation, and using shading techniques to create more lifelike drawings through this course....
We will practice drawing proportionate human faces in a variety of angles, adding hair, other features, and shading. Our goal is to become more familiar with human face proportions, and more comfortable applying them to our drawings.
Figure drawing is my favorite art discipline! I have years of experience creating my own drawings and sculptures, using the human form as inspiration, and I always brought my enjoyment and expertise to my students when we created figurative artworks. I have taught figure drawing to elementary, junior high, and high school age students for over a decade, and look forward to meeting more young artists who want to learn this skill!
Homework OfferedStudents will experience the most growth if techniques are practiced daily.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedStudents have the option of posting images of their drawings for the teacher to assess and provide comments and suggestions.
1 file available upon enrollmentStudents will need: 1. Sketchbook or blank paper 2. Pencil & pencil sharpener (Any no. 2 pencil will work, although students are welcome to use artist-grade pencils if they wish; recommended brands include Ticonderoga or General.) 3. Block eraser (I prefer white block erasers such as Pentel or Staedtler, but any art eraser is fine.)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
We will be using photographs of people as references. Photographs will depict a diverse range of body and face types, and respect for all models will be expected. There will be no nudity, however some figures may be clothed in leotards, gym shorts, or similar. Please feel free to address concerns with me beforehand, and I will take your student's needs into consideration.
