This two-day Beginner Portrait Workshop is a simplified version of my previous portrait drawing classes. In this new workshop, we will focus on the fundamentals to understand the construction of the face and head in front-facing and side profile only – no three-quarter views or complex angles.

When learning about portraiture, a critical first step is to understand how to draw the faces of “no-one-in-particular” before attempting to capture an exact likeness. I will demonstrate fun exercises to reduce features into easy shapes and explore how to play with proportions to gain a sound understanding of the process’ that have worked for the worlds greatest portrait artists.

Note: for anyone that has taken this workshop before, some material will be new, so please join us again. We maintain small class sizes to ensure a personalized and welcoming environment. Each student will have their own table to create on in a large, well lit 900 sq ft studio with lots of natural light studio. We continue to follow all guidelines from public health officials.
