Leader: Kim Wenger Hall

We’ll start with figure drawing, transition to drawing faces, then we’ll develop a painting of your choice. Maybe even a self-portrait!

Like every approach to creating art, there are some tips and guidelines that can really help once we know about them. This session will be great for people who don’t think they are “artists,” for those who were never really taught how to draw the human form, or for people who absolutely love drawing them!

Materials: (More specific suggestions will be provided in the first session)

– A clear photo of someone’s face, the bigger the better. Black and white is fine. Choose one that has a straight-forward perspective rather than a profile, side view, looking up or down at the camera. This will really simplify learning the principles!

– Paper: a few pieces of scratch paper (copy paper is perfect)

– Bigger drawing paper for the final piece

– Pencil and eraser

– Option for Drawing Pencils ( 4 or 5 from dark to light – which darkness/lightness doesn’t matter, but having a selection outside of 2B (the standard pencil) is great )

– Later, Option to paint & color – I’ll go into specific recommendations a couple of weeks into class
