Portrait Demo in Charcoal


MARCH 16 6-9PM. Virtual Format.

Three hour portrait demo with ongoing Q and A and some chit chat .

I would demonstrate drawing a portrait in charcoal while talking through the steps I take.

You are invited to follow alone, take notes, or simply participate by asking questions.

I would answer questions about technique, my own style, and whatever else you wish to talk about.

We will keep it technical, but in the spirit of the Spring Break:))
