FALL QUARTER | Perspective
Every Fall quarter, Faigin presents his Principles of Perspective Drawing evening lecture series over six to eight weeks with presentations devoted to the principles and history of perspective drawing. With demonstrations, drawings and projected images, Faigin covers one- and two-point perspective, the construction of a perspective grid, how to depict reflections, water, and images in mirrors, and much more.
SPRING QUARTER | Drawing the Head
Every Spring quarter at Gage, Faigin presents his six-evening Drawing the Features of the Head lecture series. An expert in portraiture and facial expression, Faigin presents an animated discourse on the fundamental forms of the skull, the proportions of the head, constructing the forms of the facial features, shading the head as a whole, with the final evening devoted to depicting the six basic facial expressions.
