Led by artist Natasha Jabre and geared for children ages 9–12, this course is an introduction to portrait drawing. Using a mirror and employing accurate measuring techniques, students will render the form, structure and proportions of the human head in space. Participants will also develop the expressive quality of their drawings by experimenting with quality of line, materials, and shadows.
Natasha Jabre is a representational painter whose work highlights the strangeness of everyday situations using symbolism and surreal lighting. She received her BFA from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada and her MFA from The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Her artwork has recently been exhibited in Canada and the United States, as well as internationally in Berlin, Italy, Lebanon, and Spain.
