The workshop is FREE, but RSVPs are required. (RSVP HERE!)

  • Paper of at least 70 pound
  • A compass (drafting tool)
  • Your choice of graphite or charcoal pencils
  • A blending sump

Photos will be provided for sketching.

About the workshop:

Artists are often intimidated when attempting to draw faces. Instructor Harry Sargent will teach an experimental method he uses, training the artists’ eye to notice facial details. Participants will sketch from photographs and use a compass to achieve proper proportions. Photographs will include face-on, quarter-turned and profile images. If time allows, participants will sketch subjects of different ages to observe how the proportions of the head change throughout life.

By practicing Harry’s methods, artists should be able to progress to live models with confidence. Harry’s method may not be every artist’s “ultimate” method, but the workshop can serve as a starting point in technique development.
