Instruction will be recorded, so if you miss one, you can still attend asynchronously!

Description: One of the most challenging endeavors for artists is drawing the human head. This class offers artists basic construction and facial features of the head, as well as and rendering shades and hair textures.

Facial expressions and movement of the head will be taught as well. This class is an asset for those wishing to draw or paint portraits.

Students will provide their own materials.

Materials (approximate cost: $5 – $10)

  • basic drawing pad at least 9×12 or larger
  • pencils (#2)
  • kneeded erasers
  • 18″ ruler
  • Joe uses an iPad drawing program for his virtual sessions for clarity in viewing details through Zoom, so if you are well familiar with using one, you are welcome to use such a program instead of pencil and paper. The class will not be focused on how to use the drawing program, so you must already know how to use the iPad as a drawing tool.
