This workshop is designed to hyper focus students on completing the subtle layers of surface form on the eyes, mouth, nose and ear. All skill levels are encouraged to participate in this portrait drawing class. The format is long pose, over the two days, and is virtual. The instructor will lead a presentation, discussion and/or a question & answer session for the first two hours of each session. Students will then be invited to work from any subject matter in their studios which provides visual information that supports the course. This may be limited to or include cast work, self portraiture, and/or master copying from books or high resolution imagery. The third two hours will include a class critique for each participant in the workshop. A class/technical monitor will be designated to facilitate Zoom operations as well as to organize online classroom critiques during the final two hours. In between the initial two hours and final two hours, the monitor will guide the process of student work submission, via Google Drive. The work submitted must be entirely related to the workshop exercises. The monitor will then arrange critiques among the students, in order, and time the critiques so that each student receives a well organized response to the exercises. The overall class content involves planar form, sub-forms and light on form. Graphite and other drawing mediums are welcome. The instructor demonstrations on every feature will happen via Zoom, and either through slides presentations or demonstrations, cover a range of feature landmarks, as well as the use of sculpture as a guide for graphite drawing.
