Portrait Drawing Intensive with Oscar Peterson

In this six-hour intensive, students will explore various aspects of portrait drawing from a live/clothed model. Students will work from both short and long poses as they learn to capture and realistically depict the basic anatomy and proportions of the human head. Learn about the mistakes that almost all artists, beginner to intermediate, tend to make, and the different approaches professional artists take to correct them.

This workshop is open to artists of all skill levels interested in improving their knowledge not only of drawing faces but also on how to create the likeness of a person.
