Saturday Sketch Club – Self Portrait 101

In this month’s Saturday Sketch Club, participants will learn about Self Portraits. Participants will learn how to draw facial planes, and how they are used as the foundation for shading. Teaching artist, Adriana Martinez will cover how to identify the planes of the face and other related topics to self-portraiture. You will need a crayon on pastel chalk, and a mirror to see yourself. This program is hosted on IG Live @muzeo.

Here are some materials you might grab if you have them handy:

  • Paper
  • Crayon (or pastel)
  • A mirror
  • Optional: watercolor, watercolor paper, flat brush
