Class Description:

This course immerses beginner and advanced artists in a drawing practice in which they will be observing and interpreting the mark-making of select master works. This session focuses on the head and portrait via the classical lens of drawing the human figure.

Students will gain an increased understanding of ways to utilize the timeless practice of master copying to workshop their observational drawing skills and access perspectives through which to orient themselves towards an in-depth understanding of figure drawing concepts. These concepts include the study of light, movement, and structure.
