Understanding facial features is critical to the successful execution of head drawing. For this reason, this class will be dedicated exclusively to the study of facial features. Each of the first four weeks will focus on a different feature starting with ears, then lips, noses, and eyes. The last week will include two head drawings with a focus on the features and how they relate to the rest of the head.
• Conte 1710b or Wolf’s Carbon 6B charcoal pencil
• Smooth Newsprint
• Single Edge Razor Blade
• Sanding Pad
• Kneaded Eraser
Brian Knox began studying full time at the atelier in 2012 and began teaching in 2015. As a student his emphasis was on logical and simple head and figure construction. As an instructor his dedication to teaching full time has allowed him to focus on finding clear explanations for complicated concepts and, when combined with his gestural/structural approach to head and figure drawing, has helped countless students tackle difficult subjects over the last 5 years. Brian’s ultimate goal is to produce a series of head and figure drawing books that rival those of the great instructors of the past (i.e. Bridgman, Loomis) but in a more modern format. Each term brings him one step closer to realizing that goal.
