Head Drawing Fundamentals is a must for all beginner level students and all students who are new to the school and unfamiliar with our methodology. The head drawing process will be broken down and a full class will be spent on each step. The last several weeks will be handled like a regular head drawing class with warm ups and one pose per demo. Topics will include: skulls, reilly method/gesture, structure, features, tone, 2-value, full value, etc.
Video Archives will be available livestream students until Jan 2nd.

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.
