During this hands-on Teen’s Introduction to Portraiture Drawing workshop, participants will explore the process of drawing portraits under Camila’s expert guidance. Students will learn essential techniques and principles that will help them capture the human face on paper.

Students will start with the basics of drawing, focusing on how to observe and sketch what they see from a plaster cast. They’ll also learn about the basic principles of portrait drawing, including understanding facial proportions and creating depth and volume to make their portraits look lifelike. The later part of the workshop will be spent working from a live model.

This workshop is perfect for students in Grades 8-12 who are interested in art and drawing, whether they are beginners or have some experience.

To maintain a high-quality learning experience, each workshop will offer limited spaces, allowing Camila to provide valuable one-on-one instruction for every student.
