Lessons in Pencil: Beginning Portraiture

Join Sharon Hofer as she takes you step by step through the process of drawing the human portrait. As you work through this project Sharon will guide you in drawing several types of faces. She will carefully explain how to draw the facial features as well as the hair. Students will learn how to incorporate these principles into their own drawings of the human head. Beginning Portraiture includes instruction on drawing children, teenage and adult faces. Throughout the project Sharon will demonstrate how to switch the gender of the portrait from boy to girl and back again. Students will greatly increase their artistic skill through carefully applying the lessons taught in this project.
