Introduction to Portrait Drawing:

Ages 13-15

Sundays, October 29-November 19, 1-4 pm (4 class sessions)
Guest Teaching Artist: Kiana Daneshmand from The Conservatory for Classical Art
Maximum enrollment: 12 students
$48 members/$64 non-members

In this class, students will learn how to approach drawing the portrait with a systematic step-by-step process. Materials that will be used, such as black chalk or conté crayon, will be in likeness to those used by the old masters. However, more forgiving materials such as graphite will be used in the beginning to create a strong foundational drawing of the portrait that the students can then develop further. In addition to drawing the portrait, visits to the Master Strokes: Dutch and Flemish Drawings from the Golden Age exhibition will be incorporated into the class.
