Why is it important?​

  • All drawing involves proportion. Proportion is important whether an artwork's style is realistic or abstract.

  • Realistic drawing is especially effective in training the eye to see the thing-as-it-is in its relational proportions.

  • The real benefit to the student during the portrait painting process is the creative act itself, which engages different parts of the brain and body.

  • Our classes are a detailed study in light and shadows.
