On Line 3 Week Beginning
Portrait Drawing Class Series
If you’ve tried your hand at portrait drawing, you already know it can be difficult to get the results you want.  It can seem overwhelming and can leave you wondering where to even begin.

Successful portrait drawing is a skill that is learned, practiced, and honed.  With knowledge, practice, and guidance we can learn how to develop portrait drawing skills that lead to more satisfactory results.
