Portrait Drawing and Painting

A welcome into the world of classical drawing and painting, this course, co-taught by Bill Graf and Kevin McEvoy, is designed to usher students through a sequential series of works, teaching them the basics of how to draw in the "Sight Size" tradition. Beginning with graphite, progressing on to charcoal, and finally arriving at oil painting, students learn the most important concepts and lay the foundation for seeing.

 

Working from a live model, students learn to draw and paint portraits. Building upon principles which were established in plaster cast drawing and painting, great emphasis is placed on accuracy of shapes, mixing flesh tones, and capturing the sitter's personality.

All live portrait models are booked by the students through the use of an independent modeling agency, click here for Vidal Model Bookings
