Get a crash course in proportions of the human head, capturing a likeness, and techniques to simplify facial features. Work from proportion charts developed by court portrait artists in Renaissance era, for profile and full face. See how beautifully proportionate human beings are, then make a detailed sketch of a profile portrait, and a full face portrait from a photo reference (supplied). Once, you get the hang of it, we will work from photo reference using pencil and charcoal. Open to beginners, intermediate and advanced students. 

Materials: pad of charcoal paper, 2B or 4B pencil, charcoal or Conté.
