EXPLORING THE HUMAN HEAD is a 4 week online workshop for students wanting to explore working with the human head and portraiture.

In this drawing based workshop you will explore the fundamentals necessary to understanding the structure of the head so that you can work with more confidence from both life and photographs. This is not a rigid one size fits all class, and instead is more focused around understanding a common structure that gives you the confidence and freedom to further explore in your own way.

We will be exploring proportions, basic anatomy, creating volume, common mistakes, problem solving and how to achieve a likeness. You will learn effective strategies through a mix of demonstrations that you can draw along with, and exercises that enable you to put into practice what you learn.

“Since completing three years of visual art studies in the early 2000’s I have taken numerous courses to refresh my drawing skills.  The Art Room’s Exploring the Human Head was by far the best class I have taken to understand how to draw the human head.  The course was instructed by Erika who is exceptionally skilled and knowledgeable regarding the anatomy of the human head.  Erika is also a very pleasant and encouraging teacher and for this reason I have undertook many classes of hers at The Art Room.  Thank you very much Erika.”
