Drawing Selfies: Experimental Self-Portraits
In this unique class, you will build important drawing skills and expand your repertoire of experimental methods while creating "Selfies". Instructor Danica Oudeans will inspire you with new ways to make marks, investigate proportions, and use value in your drawings. However, the traditional will be paired with the innovative as you learn different techniques for working with experimental drawing media as well. From stamped symbol portraits to pentimenti drawing techniques, this class will take the concept of a "Selfie" to a whole new level!
