This workshop is designed to teach artists of any level the steps to portrait drawing through self-portrait, while also learning about the different styles of portraiture in art history – from Rembrant to Hockney, Alice Neel and more!

This class was designed with beginners in mind, and also experienced artists in need of a new perspective when approaching portrait drawing. Students will work from a photo of themselves (either printed or on a phone) and will be guided by teaching artist Neal Hanowitz how to interpret the photo into their own style.

Attendees will explore a variety of pencils in this workshop. Rendering, implied texture, and value, with an emphasis on personal style and expressive quality, are just some of the skills you’ll be working towards as you understand each of the thought processes involved in learning how to draw portraits.

All materials provided! There are only 10 spots available for this class.

What to bring: Students can use their cell phone to take a photo of themselves the day of, bring a printed photo of their face to use as the self-portrait.
