Drawing The Portrait in Charcoal

Instructor: Teresa Oaxaca
Movement by Teresa Oaxaca
Movement by Teresa Oaxaca

The charm of charcoal drawing lies both in its simplicity and its forgiving nature. Students will delve into the psychology of the draftsman, line-work and strategy towards “letting go” and giving your hand the permission to execute what the brain wants without fumble.  Here we leave behind the stomp/tortillion, and work with a variety of brushed, charcoal points and white chalk. Students will draw from the observation of a live model. Model fees are extra.
