Despite its rich aesthetic, charcoal is a fluid drawing material which lends itself to process driven work. It can be drawn and erased, worked and reworked. It's a simple drawing tool with vast possibilities.
This 3 hour workshop is an investigation into practical, cognitive, and philosophical considerations of both the use of charcoal and the depiction of the human face. Participants will focus on the completion of a single charcoal portrait drawn from a live model. Unorthodox and unusual process suggestions will be introduced over the course of the session. Prepare to challenge your art making comfort level.
All materials will be supplied. Model fee is included.
