Portrait Drawing and Painting

Ages 8 - 17

In this camp you will learn how to draw portraits and faces. There are numerous methods to portrait drawing. But they can all be categorized into two approaches: drawing from the inside out and drawing from the outside in. Drawing from the outside in is far, far superior, particularly when it comes to painting. From accurately gauging and striking the outside shape of the head to the finished drawing is a skill that can be taught to almost anyone. When you are beginning to draw a portrait the first, all-important step is to establish the overall outside shape of the head. Most artists call the outside shape the contour. Create your own portraits in this tradition, drawing from direct observation in graphite, charcoal, pastel, ink and paint.
