Intro to Portrait drawing: Facial Dimensions and Features

  • Using black drawing pencils, you'll learn to capture the likeness of everyone you know (and don't know).  Learn proportion, and the basics and the nuances of the facial features.  You will be so proud of yourself and the way you'll begin to see the intricacies in the perfect designs of the human attributes.  You'll learn to unravel the puzzle that is within traits of the human sensory organs.  Perfecting the art of drawing facial features by practicing in 3 dimensions is the only way to go !  We'll draw from life using your classmates or a mirror.  Ultimately, we will learn the positioning of the facial features and the uniqueness in which they become exclusively YOU !!  

  • Karen Charbonneau Zukas has been drawing since childhood.  Her renditions have won her full scholarships to several prestigious places, but she chose the School of the Museum of Fine Arts along with Tufts Univ. to learn the finest details of artistry and drawing.  She hasn't stopped since, and through life's distractions and endless other skill building experiences, she's never put drawing aside for long.
