This course will explore, with detail, all aspects of value, pose, and perspective surrounding rendering a successful portrait. Students will become more familiar with the anatomy of the head as well as the various techniques involved to render it realistically. Students will experience the excitement of trying to complete a “quick sketch” of the head in 3, 5, and 10 minute sessions. In addition to demonstrating various methods of rendering portraits, students will be provided with educational handouts and reference materials. All mediums welcome.
