Designed for the student who is interested in portraits, this class will help students understand the head as a volume in space and how that volume changes with age. Students will learn how to render facial anatomy such as the eyes, nose and mouth through direct observation and using measuring techniques to portray correct proportions between features. The first classes will use dry media and then the class will progress to paint. All supplies included for the first class.

About Us



Danforth Art is a Museum and School that invites you to see, learn about, create, and be inspired by art. From the very beginning, Danforth Art has offered a robust series of studio art classes, workshops, and other offerings. During its first term, starting March 1, 1975, Danforth art offered beginning and advanced courses in drawing, painting, printmaking, and other disciplines. And, although our programming has changed over the years, the goal was, and remains, to provide consistently high-quality art-making experiences, taught by professional artists and art educators, and to use authentic works of art to inspire creativity and inquiry in our studios. There are no museum galleries or exhibitions currently in this building.
