Self Portrait Drawing
with Helen Bouchard
Saturday, September 9, 2017
1:30pm - 4:30pm
Students will learn to draw from life through the study of
their own mirrored reflection. Helen will demonstrate her technique and explain
the anatomy of the head, as well as measuring techniques and describing the
forms of the face through subtle value changes. An analysis of self
portraits by the old masters will help us figure out why and how the self portrait
can be used to express ourselves and our life story.
