In this online drawing workshop, students will create one long term drawing and several quick studies over the course of six weeks.  The main project will be the deconstruction and deep analysis of a master portrait (TBD).  Students will begin the process with an exploration of the big picture in terms of structure and light, and will then subdivide their focus on the specific study of the features.  Supplemental studies from week to week, along with adequate time to recreate a master work will help to deepen understanding and enrich the overall drawing experience.  Both Perceptual and conceptual drawing strategies will be discussed and employed  during weekly instructor demos and student feedback to help reinforce the process.  Ultimately, the lessons from this class will translate directly to the practice of drawing from life.  Though some material techniques will be covered, the goal of this class is for us to focus on ideas that will help us grasp the visual experience as it applies to nature and the human form. 

 Please sign up early, as class size is limited.
