Schantelle was enrolled in my foundation drawing class at the School Of Visual Arts last semester. Schantelle brought so much energy into the classroom.
The sheer volume of work Schantelle completed was pretty impressive. Definitely makes me think that I should be drawing way more.
Shantelle I’ll see you in perspective class next Fall semester!

This live class was held on August 22, 2020. The focus of this class was to say that there are many ways to start a portrait drawing. In this class I started with the eye.
Starting a portrait drawing from the eye is a great option. It’s called spiraling out from a place that you understand.
It’s important that you take some time to practice portrait drawing using diverse technique. This way you will find the one that works best for you.
