Drawing the Head: A Virtual Workshop with Julia Santos Solomon
Multimedia artist and Teaching Artist-in-Residence Julia Santos Solomon, whose work is featured in Women to the Fore, has been exploring the human head throughout her professional career. Observe how she captures the shape, movement, and expression of the face with an economy of line, and learn how to train your eye and hand in this workshop, live from the artist’s studio. All you’ll need is pencil, paper, scissors, glue, a board (masonite, cardboard, heavy gauge paper, etc.), and fabric (optional). Choose a subject to draw; it can be yourself, a model or a large head shot from a magazine. Then, collage your drawing onto the board, on which you’ve placed a symbolic landscape as a backdrop. Think of your happy place!
