Portrait Drawing Workshop

TIME: 10:30am – 1:30pm EST (3 Hour Sessions)
The Princeton Academy of Art online 4-Day Portrait Drawing Workshop is a great way to hone your portrait drawing skills through an in-depth study of the skull and facial structure while focusing on the fundamentals of drawing. Iliya Mirochnik will be drawing live demonstrations on Zoom, explaining the key assignments and principles. Participants will also work alongside Iliya and have their work critiqued through screen and file sharing. Each lesson will be recorded, and the students will be able to download it afterward for review.
Day 1: Students will focus on quick studies of heads focusing on both a structural and an observational approach. Students will begin by studying fundamental reference angles and points to grasp the tilt, character, and proportions quickly. Participants will then continue drawing quick studies by analyzing value relationships and contour drawing.
Day 2: Students will devote time to all of the features of the face, working from example images of casts and real human features. The forms will be analyzed and explained from a structural standpoint.
Day 3: Students will continue working on the head features and draw one 1.5 hour portrait study.
Day 4: Students work on one 3-hour portrait.
