Improve your portraits and generally draw heads by regularly drawing models.

This portrait drawing class is ideal for intermediate students who want to apply and deepen their knowledge of the basics. Each week there will be a different model that you will draw independently in long or short poses. At our art school we are convinced that many short drawings will effectively bring you to your goal - to draw better portraits!

The instructor will give you demonstrations or corrections on tracing paper and will be present for questions the whole time to support you with your individual problems.

If you are not familiar with rhythm lines or cannot yet draw a head with correct proportions, we recommend that you first take our Fundamentals: Portraits course.
