VCAD instructor Glen Kennedy introduces fundamental drawing techniques to encourage young artists to develop and hone their drawing skills. In Part 1 of the video series, Kennedy starts by sketching the base shape of a woman’s face. The structure of the face is blocked off into sections so that the artist can understand the placement of the ears, nose, eyes, eyebrows, mouth, and hairline.
