Learn to draw the portrait from old photographs! Portrait Artist Sierra Lowe will walk you through the steps of creating a realistic portrait while using her favorite subject matter: antique photographs. This is a fun way to familiarize yourself with a range of drawing tools, practice facial proportions, and learn a process for drawing that you can continue to utilize even after the event. Feel free to bring photographs of your own ancestors to work from or images will be provided to you.
