Join artist Angie Redhead on a two week adventure in drawing.

The old masters were skilled draftsmen. Having a good understanding of logical art allowed them to deviate from the rules in their own way and create amazing masterpieces. In this two week online class, we will show you the drawing tools needed to improve and confidently take your art to the next level.

During the first week, we will take you through perspective, the parts of a landscape and how perspective relates to portraiture. We will also cover the various methods of shading, finding the light source and illustrating highlights.

For week two, we will take an in depth look at the anatomy of the head, it's proportions, bone structure, muscles and facial planes in order to understand where shadows and features should fall in a portrait.
