All of the well known masters like Leonardo Davinci, MichelAngelo and the highly skilled draftsmen of the 19th and early 20th centuries learned the principles of drawing a convincing human figure and portrait. In this class, you will learn a technique to draw the human portrait from any angle or viewpoint.

Lance will work along side the students and create his own drawing.
