Learn the basics of realistic drawing in this course with James Razko! Suitable for beginners, this 4-session course will introduce techniques that help capture realism in drawing through practice and demonstration.

Participants will explore a range of drawing methods, from hands-free intuitive drawing to the precise envelope method. Learning about light, form, volume, shading, and facial proportions, each participant will receive guided instructions as well as a chance to engage in group critiques with the other participants. The course will begin with quick drawings using photographs as references, then move to precise still-life. By the end of the course, each participant will create a self-portrait drawn from a photograph.

This workshop is suitable for beginner participants with no prior experience.
