Since the Chuck Close portrait required tracing from Dumpr sketch I have been trying to build up the student’s drawing skills through homework. Through class work and homework they have learnt about the “rules” of portraiture, checked it on a magazine face, tried drawing from a photo and used artyfactory.com to learn how to draw and tone an eye, nose and mouth.
