Beginner to Intermediate - the class will focus on building the structure of a head using a limited number of pastels of just a few values. The idea is to learn to see mass before line, as a preparation for painting and to acheive the illusion of three-dimensional form. the emphasis on value (darks and lights) avoids the complication of color for less experienced students, but our selection of pastels can render adequate color for a portrait study.
At first, outlined heads will be provided on pastel paper, on which the student will work to plce the correct values as seen on a color photograph of the model. Some instructrion in comparative measurement, to achieve a likeness, will be included.
Paper and some pastels will be provided.
Class is limited to 8 students.
