Convincing hair is essential to framing a portrait and finishing up any figurative work with polish. This demonstration will cover four stages of drawing hair, from understanding a single lock of hair to simplifying a head of hair.

Mandy will also explain a variety of hair types: dark, blonde, brunette, straight, wavy, curly, short, long, and braided and how different techniques can help you achieve these different kinds.

She studied in an intensive atelier program in Florence. She’s an excellent teacher with experience instructing animators, young professional artists, adults developing personal interests and children coming to drawing for the first time.

Mandy Boursicot presents a step by step method that introduces students to the basic concepts of the classical order of light—line shape and volume. Her progressive exercises are designed to sharpen the skills involved in rounding the form, toning and bringing drawings to a complete finish. Whatever level of drawing and painting students bring to her studio, her well-tested method enhances everyone’s drawing and painting.

With these traditional skills, students can pursue their individual interests. The fundamental concepts and techniques find ready application in all drawing and painting as well as in photography more experimental art forms. While the method is rigorous, everyone progresses at their own pace in an encouraging environment.
