Drawing the Portrait in Charcoal


  • Scottsdale Artist School 3720 North Marshall Way Scottsdale, AZ, 85251 United States (map)

This two-day charcoal drawing workshop will include demonstrations as well as individual guidance and feedback. Kate will focus on the importance of placement accuracy, values, edges and textures, and the usefulness of photographic reference. She will show how she sets up, lights, and photographs a model. Students may also take new reference of the same model but can bring their own if they so desire. The class will start with a demonstration and discussion, then participants will be encouraged to work on their own drawings using the same process. Kate will lend assistance to each and every person.
