Self Portrait - Michael Gillespie
Students will practice the basic placement of features and structure of the head, using a mirror to do a self portrait. (wrinkles are optional.) Thus a live model will be used, without the expense of hiring someone to pose. Students may work from an approved photo. A supply list will be provided.
