with Kate Meyer's pencil portrait technique
Short course on portrait drawing at the Community Arts Center

Step-by-step detailed instructions: How to draw portraits from a photograph
  Learn to draw portraits! In this drawing course, professional artist Kate Meyer will guide you through a step-by-step tutorial that illustrates a classical approach, the grid system, for drawing a life-like portrait with pencil.
Start your amazing journey to portrait
drawing in this three-hour class.

  All you'll need is to find a photograph of whoever you want to draw. Everything else will be provided.

Tips on choosing a photo to draw from:
  • Be sure the face is clearly visible.
  • A close-up shot works the best. The most detailed, the better.
  • The larger the face on the photo, the easier it will be to draw.
  • Please be sure the photo is sharp; blurry images are difficult to work with.
  • The photo must be printed; digital images will not work in this class.
  • Contact me if you need help with your photo.
Materials provided:
  • Black Warrior HB2 sketching pencil
  • One kneadable eraser
  • Archive-quality acid-free 9x12-inch sketching paper
  • Practice paper
  • Blending tissue
  • The step-by-step grid method handout sheets
These will be available for class use:
