Open Drawing Sessions #33: The Skull!


ZOOM SESSION | Wednesday | Number of Lessons: 1 | 10/19/2022 - 10/19/2022 | 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST

Who doesn’t like to draw a skull or two, once in a while? Skulls have been depicted in so many artworks during these past couple of millennia: Roman mosaics, medieval depictions of hell, memento mori, or in stickers behind pick up trucks.

This Open Drawing Session is dedicated to study and draw the human skull, using charcoal and chalk on toned paper and graphite on white paper. We will work from photographic references I will provide you with, I will also demonstrate, using a real (plastic) skull, the main structural, proportional and anatomical features of the skull, that will permit you to understand and better draw this fascinating subject.
