Drawing from plaster casts is an excellent opportunity to study forms of the head and the behavior of light without the frustrations of models that move or having to judge different local values in addition to light and shadow. The uniformly white surface makes it easier to determine the important division between shadow and light as well as making reflected light easier to see. The class will begin with the study of general planes of the head and the block-in stage before working from the casts. With a simple selection of materials and no model fee to add to the cost, Cast Drawing is a time-tested way to increase your drawing skills and learn about portrait drawing at a pace that allows for contemplation and reflection. This class will be taught using both studios with a maximum of 6 per studio.
