This is a hands-on introductory workshop on the technique of drawing portraits with graphite pencils. Under the guidance of visual artist Kakim Goh, participants will learn to draw by experimenting with materials and exploring the interplay of line and tonal gradations. The workshop begins with a description of drawing materials, an explanation of the use of line and tone in drawing, a presentation of historical drawings and an overview of the basic structure of the human head. This will be followed by a drawing session that gives participants the unique opportunity to create portraits from live models.
