Steve Brodner Illustrator, satirical artist, commentator

Taught by a top practitioner, this course in caricature will cover every aspect of rendering faces with power and precision. Understanding the messages that are carried in the features of a face and teasing them out is a skill that can be learned and honed. Live-model drawing will be approached with a wide variety of techniques that will make jumping into a project feel like the most natural thing in the world. Through demonstrations and individual instruction, you will learn how to find various ways to render faces in tone, volume, line and, importantly, how to "push" a face to give its fullest expression to the inner creature. Integrating your portrait with narrative is a big part of this course. There will be watercolor and pen-and-ink demos. The result will not only be your refined drawing ability but also finished pieces for your portfolio and website.
