Students will be working with pencil, and will be guided through the process of toning their own paper. There will be an introduction on a variety of drawing papers available and the ways that they can be toned by hand.

Portrait anatomy and structure are studied from various points of view, with particular attention paid to the anatomical construction of its parts: the skull, ear, eye, nose and mouth.

The class will work on one long pose, focusing on structure, proportion, line quality, light impression and atmosphere. Students receive daily individual critiques to help guide them towards a fully resolved and accurate drawing.

Students work around one model from a variety of viewpoints: profile, full front, three-quarter, reconstructing both the anatomy and the psychology of the sitter. Here the study of expression is undertaken to convey mood and personality.
