This course will benefit the beginner and advanced artist alike in learning how to draw incredibly realistic portraits of people you know, from photo and from life.
As a professional portrait artist, I will share my over 25 years of portrait drawing experience with you, taking you on a step-by-step journey in portrait drawing, by personally teaching, demonstrating, and critiquing so you have the skills you need to succeed.
My no-nonsense method will quickly elevate you from the most simple level of drawing to advanced portraiture.
The best part?
You will walk away from the class with a great portrait that you will be proud to show. All materials, including drawing pencils, paper, erasers, and sharpener are provided. Although this course is designed for adults, older children who are serious in learning how to draw may also participate.
