EXPLORING THE HUMAN HEAD is a 4 week workshop for students wanting to explore working with the human head and portraiture.  Predominately drawing based, you will explore the fundamentals necessary to understand the structure of the head and on achieving a likeness so that you can work with more confidence from both life and photographs.

You’ll learn structures and strategies through a mix of demonstrations and set exercises, and put it all into practice!  Please note this class is now running online as 4 x 2 hour classes on zoom, with the first session beginning at 6pm so we can introduce you to how we use zoom and Slack for class.

“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.”
