Event description
Led by artist David Tenorio, this workshop will cover a wide range of instruction for creating incredibly expressionistic portraits.

About this Event

David Tenorio will share his personal techniques for drawing heads using one of his favorite tools, the Pilot Parallel Pen. He will show different work-flows for drawing the head based on time, location and the person you’re drawing as well as ways to push expression in your drawings.

This 3 hour workshop will cover such topics as:

  • Beginner and advanced tips for drawing the head
  • How do we observe quickly? Seeing what's most important
  • Unique techniques in using the Pilot Parallel Pen, including wet-media techniques
  • Workflows for creating mixed-media portraits and how to draw outside and at home

For both beginners and seasoned veterans, this workshop will provide instruction that spans all abilities and skill levels. The workshop will begin with a detailed lecture covering the basics of drawing the head and tool techniques for the Pilot Parallel Pen, followed by a series of exercises and demonstrations on drawing the head, concluding with a Q&A segment at the end of the session.

Each workshop participant will receive a drawing kit valued at $37.00 containing all of David’s hand-picked materials including a Pilot Parallel Pen. The cost of this kit is included in your class fee!

We hope to see you there!
