Working both from live models and photos, this course concentrates on studying bone structure, proportions and features in order to create a convincing portrait. Starting with sculpting the head from a live model, we will progress to line & tonal drawings, learning to create the shadows & highlights necessary to capture an individual likeness.

This course is designed for either beginning artists who would like to try out portraiture, or artists who would like to improve their ability to capture a likeness.
