In this three session workshop students will learn the basic principles of drawing the human face,
neck, and shoulders.
Class 1:Two charcoal drawings:1. Students will draw the skull, neck vertebrae, and collarbone from observation of a skeleton
(replica, cast from life).2. Students will draw facial muscle structure by observing a lifelike clay bust with anatomical
details.
Class 2:Charcoal drawing from a live model. The familiarity with skull and facial structure gained in Class 1 will be applied to drawing the
model’s face, head, and neck area. Emphasis will be on the basic planes of the face, using patterns of light and shadow.
Class 3:Charcoal and white chalk (on toned paper) drawing of a live model.Emphasis will be on facial features, as this technique lends itself to
greater detail.

If desired, materials may be purchased from VisArts and will be on hand at the first class. Or materials may be purchased at any good art supply store.
