Portraits & Faces: Drawing, Painting, & Sculpting

Portraits & Faces: Drawing, Painting, & Sculpting

Ages 7-11

The human face has long been the most popular subject of artists through the ages. In this class, we will focus on different facial expressions and how to capture them with drawing, painting, and sculpting techniques. Many rendering styles will be covered, from cartooning to classical. Additionally, we will tour the work of artist Alison Saar, whose exhibition Of Aether and Earthe is currently on view at the Armory, and draw inspiration from her art as we create our own unique pieces.

Materials are provided and included in the price of the class. Masks are required inside the Armory for all students and visitors. With few exceptions, students age 12 and up must show proof of full vaccination on the first day of class. Please read our onsite class safety protocols here. .
