Portrait Drawing in Charcoal


Discover how a portrait is so much more than simply recording proportions; instead, it can be one of the most expressive drawings you can create. Identifying the simple patterns and forms that are the basis for a well-designed portrait, students will learn through demonstration to use form, value, and line to develop expression. Please bring a large photo (at least 8 x 10) from which to work. All other supplies are provided.  Photos taken in natural light with clear contrast are recommended.  Open to all skill levels.  This program has been organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and is supported, in part, by the Paul Mellon Endowment and the Jean Stafford Camp Memorial Fund.
