This 10-week introduction to the fascinating subject of portraiture will start with rudimentary anatomy and basic drawing techniques, where measuring, proportion, line and tone are discussed and investigated.
Working with live models each week gives us the chance to really explore the unique features and character of the face and head.
Beginners and advanced students are both welcomed, as there will be demonstrations of basic techniques as students learn to develop their skills with reference to historic and contemporary artists.
A small sketchbook for notes/thumbnail sketches etc
A2 paper suitable for drawing on (190gsm approx)
A selection of charcoal/pastels
Fixative Spray (unperfumed hairspray is fine)
Students may also be interested in joining the complementary Introduction to Painting the Head, which runs on a Thursday from 1.00pm - 3.30pm with artist Paul Mowat.
