You will learn to ‘see’ the light and shade in the face and how to use charcoal to describe it. You will also be shown how to draw the key elements in the face and how to position them accurately to capture a likeness.
Images and materials will be provided. If you want to work from your own photographs please ensure that they are clear and have good tonal contrast.
You might like to bring pastel fixative or extra firm hairspray to ‘fix’ your drawings to prevent smudging as you take them home.
