Join Instructor Jeremy Davis on Thursday afternoons to sculpt the portrait from life. Jeremy will guide students to first perfect the profile, and then learn to place key landmarks. By training the eye in this way, the student will see and understand the rhythms, forms, and construction of the head; then work toward achieving a likeness which reflects the character of the model posing. Throughout the course students will be encouraged to develop their own interpretation of the model through a pose of the head and its expression. All levels welcome.
Please contact Jeremy to register (860) 834-1742 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
