Students in this workshop will practice drawing a portrait using more than one ‘guiding techniques’.  For centuries, artists have used techniques that aided them in improving proportion, seeing shadows and capturing likenesses. This was especially true with human portraits and figures. Come prepared to enjoy this process and learn some very old techniques used before the camera existed.
