The Portrait in Red Chalk
The Portrait in Red Chalk
Instructor: Dan Thompson
April 8 — April 9, 2017
Time: 9 a.m.– 4 p.m.
Tuition: $399

This historically based drawing workshop examines the portrait in red chalk and red crayon on hand-toned paper. In an extended portrait pose, participants will learn about mark making—particularly hatch mark—as they discover the differences in binding media and their potential applications.  Students build up their pieces to describe nuances of features in the human face after chiseling the major planes. Contour, linear characteristics, editing forms and insights offered by the instructor provide a strong foundation for developing more proficient life drawing skills. Additional time to prepare the paper is required.
