I try to improve my English, translating some texts into it. Now I have a trouble with finding a right word for this expression: “an exercise which students do at school to practice their drawing skills, where they sketch a head made of gypsum”.

I made few variants of what it may look like, but I think that no one is right:
1. portraying exercise of drawing a gypsum head
2. drawing exercise of portraying a gypsum head
3. learning exercise of drawing a gypsum head
4. training drawing of a gypsum head
5. exercise of portraying a gypsum head
6. exercise of drawing a gypsum head
7. gypsum head drawing exercise
8. gypsum head portraying exercise


Also I got one variant from one member of this forum: “exercise sketch of a gypsum head”. I am not sure about word “sketch”. As I understand, “sketch” is done very quickly but art-students sometimes spend many hours at this exercise, so then it is not a sketch but "…....." - what a word it can be?

Thank you.

P.S.
May be one of these is good?
9. exercise drawing of a gypsum head
10. exercise portraying of a gypsum head
