Charcoal Portraits with Gary Faigin

Recently I modeled for a portraiture workshop taught by Gary Faigin, founder of Gage Academy of Art and author of The Artist's Complete Guide to Facial Expression, after hearing his simple discussion and seeing the transformation in the participating artists' work I'm excited to read this book and see how it influences my sketching. After witnessing him teach to a class including all levels of artists I'm not the least bit surprised that he had a hand in founding Gage Academy, and it's commitment to all levels and ages of artists.
