Classical Drawing Series: Animal Heads and Eyes

  • Thursday, February 25, 2016
  • 6:00pm - 8:30pm

"Molly" by Patricia Savage

Students will learn the simple steps and classic techniques of anatomical drawing used to draw a mammal’s head. Eyes are really crucial for drawing an individual animal with realism. We’ll closely examine and compare specimens and photographs, and learn about perspective, measurement, and close observation.
