Drawing The Portrait With Colored Pencils: All Levels
All skill levels are welcome in this pencil portrait drawing class! Learn techniques and tips on how to render lifelike portraits from photos using the (optional) gridding system. Each week’s assignment focuses on a different facial feature. Students are encouraged to purchase a 48 or 72 count Prismacolor set, but can work with their own color pencils or in greyscale if they prefer. Students should bring a 9x12 greyscale drawing pad (e.g., Strathmore), a battery-operated eraser (e.g., Derwent), and a white charcoal pencil. Other optional materials will be discussed in the first class. A materials fee, payable to the instructor at the first class, is $15.
