FREE DEMO: The Beautiful Human Face, Portraits in Charcoal with Jessie Brugger July 19th, 2015

The Beautiful Human Face - Portraits in Charcoal
Jessie Brugger
Sunday, July 19, 2015

Free Demonstration

This demonstration is about portraiture. It is looking at the human face and understanding the skull structure, the bones, the muscles, the lines that are created on the face due to facial expressions, it is about appreciating the human face that sits on your own body and loving faces around you. 

Jessie expects to give each person attending a new love of drawing portraits. "I want people to leave my demo excited about doing portraiture and excited about looking at faces. We are all so unique and Beautiful and when you draw a face, it is such an enriching experience. I am always fascinated by how different our faces are from each other and the beauty in every face. Learning the structure and drawing techniques help with portraiture. I am going to have anatomical reference drawings and images on how an artist can interpret these images."
