601BW-P: Portrait Drawing with Bob Way
Level: Experienced Beginners to Advanced
$215 plus model fee (see below)
Students will have the opportunity to learn the primary foundation for all portrait work. This workshop is specifically designed for the artist that seldom works from life or perhaps has been too intimidated to try. You will be working from a live model. By doing so you will gain greater insight into how to better interpret, when needed, a photographic reference. You will be taught the proper use of angles, plumb lines and relative measurement. Each student will learn how to acquire correct proportions in order to achieve a likeness of the model. Using various drawing and blending materials you will learn how to draw and render form in a realistic fashion.
Students are required to help pay the model fee, which is based on the number of students attending the workshop, ranging from $10-$18 each.
