In this course, you will be taught to understand the structure of the human head and principals of idealistic proportion. This will allow you to produce more realistic and convincing representations from photographs and from life. You begin by learning the basic planes and forms that build the structure of a human head. From there you will move onto studying various portrait masters and applying the knowledge to drawing plaster cast models. You will learn the fundamentals of portraiture in order to confidently create an expressive portrait by taking advantage of new technology and combining it with solid comprehension of anatomy and structure.
