Portraiture, Drawing & Shading

Drawing is one of the most beautiful visual  form of human expression. Apart from improving concentration, creativity,  analytical as well as problem solving skills, it enhances the capacity of the person to communicate well and acts as a stress buster also.

The participants will be guided to observe the subject, with emphasis on the human form & the art of sketching, which is an important step to drawing. They will be taught the effect of light on the objects-the basis for the pencil shading-which gives depth to any drawing.

The content will be starting from basic lines, to various aspects of human form and the effects of light  & shade.
