This course provides students with a foundation of drawing skills, initially using black and white drawing media and later some colour media, such as soft pastels. During the first part of the course, learning the "landscape" of the human head and face is the focus, through anatomy, drawing techniques, and developing observational skills. The second part adds other relevant information, and begins to address developing the student’s approach to portraiture. This may include rendering a likeness using expressiveness, or experimenting with the genre. Examples of artists’ works will be used to illustrate the diverse approaches to portraiture.
