Portrait Drawing
Portrait Drawing

Learn how to really see and draw realistically This class is beneficial to students of all levels. Students will learn to draw the human face in black and white. Students will be drawing from a photograph provided. Ms. Shih’s method of drawing realistically blends techniques drawn from “Drawing from the Right Side of the Brain” (Betty Edwards) as well as those she learned from an illustration class at The Academy. By combining these two methods, Ms. Shih has come up with a way of teaching that is nothing short of magical. The objective is to learn to see value, shape, proportion and placement; the ultimate goal is for students to capture a true likeness of the subject.
