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 you can work with more confidence from both photographs and life.  Everybody is unique and this class will give you an understanding of the common structure of the skull and head, which you can then continue exploring in your own way.

You’ll work through a variety of exercises to learn proportions, basic anatomy, creating volume, common mistakes, problem solving and how to achieve a likeness.  We provide effective strategies and demonstrations that you can draw along with, and put everything into practice.
