About the Event

Class Description:

Free Portrait Class on Zoom! Mike Russel will be teaching a free portrait class, sponsored by! He’ll teach you how to draw realistic faces, using shading, shapes, and proportions. Just bring a few pieces of blank paper, some medium weight pencils, a sharpener, eraser, and a photocopied picture of someone you’d like to sketch. We’ll use that photo to measure our proportions and trace the shapes of our different values!

What should I bring?  If possible, bring a normal wood pencil (this is preferred over a mechanical pencil), a sharpener, an eraser, and 3-4 pieces of blank paper.  If you don’t have a pencil, bring markers or even a crayon!  Have a flat surface to draw upon.  Finally, bring a simple object to draw – a ball or fruit, such as an apple, orange, or grapes.
