Expressive Self-Portraiture

November 12, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm

$25 – $175

with Candace Weigand
Saturdays Oct. 29, Nov. 5 & Nov. 12, 3:30-6pm
at PS1 Close (538 S. Gilbert)
pay-what-you-can: $25-$175

In this 3-session workshop we will go from fundamentals of facial anatomy to creating intuitive portraits. The first session will cover basic facial proportions via drawing the skull from observation. In the second session we will explore building up form and volume using planar analysis. And finally we’ll put it all together to create our own portraits. If you have preferred drawing tools, feel free to bring and use those. Paper and charcoal will be provided. No drawing experience is necessary, but may be useful.
Open to ages 18+.

Registration deadline: Oct. 21

*PS1 workshops are pay-what-you-can thanks to support from Kum & Go and community members. $156 is the true cost of the workshop, and we encourage participants to select the cost that they can afford, or pay a little extra to support future sliding-scale fees.
