Drawing the Features of the Head
with Gary Faigin
Thursdays | Apr 15 – May 20 | 12:30pm-1:30pm
Nothing is more emotionally compelling to observe than the human face. Magazines flaunt idealized facial beauty; Hollywood packages expressive faces for big-screen cinema; TV capitalizes on talking heads to give the facts and features of the day. Over six lectures, Gary Faigin, author of the acclaimed The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression, presents an animated discourse on the foundations of drawing the head. Drawing from models and showing slides, he guides you to a broader understanding of this fascinating subject.
