HEAD & FACE WORKSHOP WITH ROBERTO OSTI

The head and face are probably the most rewarding parts of the human figure for an artist to draw or paint. Head and face can also be an intimidating subject because of its inherent complexities. This intensive online workshop of the duration of two weekends, is designed to give students interested in portraiture a sound understanding of the structure, anatomy and physiognomy of the head and is organized on a systematic methodology that will give the students access to the knowledge and technique necessary to master and enjoy drawing this challenging yet satisfying subject.

The workshop is distributed across two weekends. During the first two classes of the duration of 6 hours each and held online with live video demonstrations, we will discuss the structure and planes of the head along with its anatomy and facial features and their proper position in the face.

Roberto Osti, Instructor

Learning the anatomy of the figure is essential to drawing and painting the figure with accuracy. In Human Anatomy For Artists, students will learn a structural, layered method that was developed during the Renaissance to describe essential elements of anatomy and will enable the students to realistically replicate the underlying structure of the body. Using easy-to-understand scales and ratios, students will learn to conceptualize the front and side views of the skeleton with basic shapes, then add detail with simplified depictions of complex bones and joints. Finally, students will learn to draw a muscle map of the entire body with volumetric form and realistic dimension, as well as master the feet, hands and skull. Each week, students will learn a different portion of the body.

In this 4-day course, students will learn the essential stereometric, structural and anatomical aspects of the head: the main volumes and landmarks of the skull, the plains and the muscles of the face and neck, the positioning of the facial features, and how to apply these notions to the practice of drawing the human head.Finally, the participants will also have the opportunity  to practice a few essential drawing techniques and methods: structural and tonal drawing, drawing on toned paper, reduction technique and trois crayons technique.
