In this class we’ll learn the basics of creating dynamic, well balanced portraits on any scale. Too many of us struggle with heads that are too large, or eyes that just seem too thick—and getting the right mix of features sometimes feels just impossible. However with the right tools, drawing faces can be both fun and simple! Suitable for complete beginners as well as self-taught artists looking for a catch-up, this class gives simple yet detailed guidance into creating compelling portraits.
You can expect to learn how to draw the human head from any angle, as well as understand how to convey faces in brief when working in smaller scales.
Bring whatever materials you would like—although we would recommend against using charcoal or wet mediums if you are a beginner!
Taught by Soho Life Drawing founder Ann Mackowski, this portraiture class is part of our mini-class series designed to give beginner, early-stage, and self-taught life drawers a leg up. Choosing from a variety of poses and examples from contemporary art and art history, these comprehensive classes allow students to get a more in depth understanding of life drawing as well as one-on-one critiques for those who wish—who can send Ann a photo of one of their works from class for an additional visual mark-up.
